    Great choices; the Strong Museum in NY is AMAZING! But where is the EdVenture children’s museum in Columbia, SC? It’s the largest children’s museum in the South, and home to “Eddie,” the world’s largest kid! http://gobigorgohomeblog.com/1054

    @ Traci, Looks like an awesome museum. I’ll have to keep my eye on it for 2011!! Right now it has some mixed reviews from trekaroo users?? Hopefully if it is such a great place, that will soon change 😉 http://www.trekaroo.com/activities/edventure-childrens-museum-columbia-south-carolina

    I HAVE to add the Mississippi Children’s Museum in my hometown of Jackson, MS. It really is amazing!

    Great List! I am coming back to your site when we take any family vacations!! We live in Philly and are just starting to explore locally. For anyone looking to save a few dollars at the Please Touch Museum, we put together a youtube episode on how we were able to afford the visit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fTxNiRQXmSQ
