Q?irus is a learning space where visitors can (among other things) handle some of the 6,000 collection objects and view them under microscopes. It is well staffed and has endless specimens for kids to examine, including skulls, fossils, insects, arrowheads, as well as cultural artifacts, such as dolls and toys.
The museum's Q?rius webpage does not do justice to this light, airy, and attractive space. Q?rius a great option for kids of all ages--and their parents! It is open Monday through Friday 2-5pm and Saturday and Sunday 10am-5pm (October 2 to June 9) and then 10am to 5pm (June 10 to Oct 1). Admission is free.
