Inside the Children’s Museum is a healthy kids clinic, an infant/toddler developmental space, a parent resource room that also serves as a multi-purpose space, a family restroom, a nursing room for mothers, and a natural science space. Its natural science space exhibits one of the Museum’s largest fully articulated specimens from the natural science collection -- a Galapagos turtle, placed in a large dome so that young guests can see it from all angles.
