Kid-friendly access to museum resources on wide range of topics
Pros: The wide range of resources empowers kids to make sense of the world around them.
Cons: Content doesn't expand to fit your screen, sometimes resulting in small, hard-to-read text and a lot of white space.
Bottom Line: Even given some limitations, the site is filled with ways for kids to explore meaning in historical artifacts, scientific data, and art.
