The Clinton Library hosts artifacts from the Clinton Presidency;  regardless of political affiliation this is truly an interesting attraction to visit.  The second level of the museum displays a timeline of his presidency, along with a wide variety of artifacts.  The third level is a rotating exhibit;  contact the museum to find out what is currently on display.  
FAMILY FRIENDLY PROS-   The older children were very interested by all of the things to see and the information provided.   There were some artifacts (such as letters) from celebrities that peaked their interest.  
FAMILY FRIENDLY CONS-  Can be overwhelming for little ones due to the fact that things are "hands off".  Plan to keep the visit short if traveling with young children.

Great variety of exhibits.  The habitats are large and animal friendly.   The Kiwanis Kids Corner has a playground and occasional animal presentations.  Don't forget to stop at the Children's Farm Petting Zoo.  
FAMILY FRIENDLY PROS-   Lots to see and a great way to get energy out.  Playground and petting zoo were very popular.
FAMILY FRIENDLY CONS-  Be sure to bring a stroller for little ones as it is quite a walk around the whole zoo.   Also, the bathrooms are quite a distance from some of the farther out areas.

Family Friendly Travel Tip:
Older children can use time in the car or airplane to learn a new craft.  There are some great books about learning to knit, crochet and cross-stitch.  Your child will be occupied and have a sense of accomplishment when they have completed a project by the end of the journey.
