Cultural destinations often fall into one of two camps: totally for kids or not really at all for kids. We found a slew of museums that cater to everyone, offering programming that is sure to educate and entertain kids and parents alike. Start your exploration by flipping through this slideshow of the country’s best museums to bring the kids!

Join the History Club – St. Louis, Mo

Meet you in St. Louis at the Miss-our-i His-tor-y Club-house! Pardon the mixed show tunes, but talk about fun! The Missouri History Museum’s recently redone History Clubhouse is an ongoing and unparalleled exhibit. Everything here is hands-on as downtown St. Louis, a Mississippi steamboat, and the 1904 World’s Fair (of which the museum building itself is an original part of) all come alive. Weekly storytelling is also featured. To get your free one-hour session in the Clubhouse, get in line at opening. Tickets are first come, first serve. Extra perk: the Museum has thoughtfully reserved 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. as family time.
