On a bright and gorgeous day, we set off from Delray Beach. It was a quick, less than 20 minute ride. There was parking, but go early to make sure you are parked close to the Explorium and Science Playground.

The Children’s Science Explorium, located right in Sugar Sand Park, is a hands-on science center designed for children 5 – 12 years of age.

It was an immediate hit with my curious toddler.  It’s perfect for younger kids, who aren’t going to want to go through room after room of exhibits.   It’s free, but suggested donation is $5.

We loved the Secrets of Circles exhibit, created by the Children’s Discovery Museum of San Jose.

There was another room across the hall that we enjoyed that was filled with very hands on activities.
