201 E Hargett St, Raleigh, NC - (919-834-4040)
Description: discovery museum, open indoor play, day camps
Parking: on street metered or paid garage
Ages: FREE (1 and under), $5 (per adult & child)
Hours: Mon-Sun (9am-5pm), Open until 7pm each Thursday & on First Friday
Notes: The museum tends to be less busy on Monday mornings. Plan to spend at least 2 hours. Bring your own food or eat at the café / gift shop. I would recommend parking in a covered lot as opposed to on the street. The meter always runs out too soon and parking tickets are expensive.
