A museum of the strange and unusual.  Walk through themed rooms that will amaze you.   The kids will be talking about all of the neat stuff they see for a long time!  A big fave was the lock of George Washington's hair.  See their website for a printable discount coupon.
FAMILY FRIENDLY PROS-   The children were talking about all of the oddities for months after.   Self guided so you can move at your own pace.
FAMILY FRIENDLY CONS-  Some of the displays (and the reading involved) were boring for the younger children so they wanted to rush through areas that parents and older children would have liked to have had more time in.

Whether your kids are history buffs or not, they are sure to find something that interests them at Historic Cold Spring Village.  Wander around the 26 restored buildings that are laid out like a 1790s - 1840s village.  Costumed interpreters go about the daily life of a villager of the time and happily answer questions and provide narrative about the time period.  They seem extremely knowledgeable.   There is also an activity area where children can make crafts and play games.  Don't forget to let the kids try on some of the old costumes! 
FAMILY FRIENDLY PROS-   The interpreters were very animated and provided such interesting narrative that all of the children were kept entertained.  There are lots of hands-on opportunities. 
FAMILY FRIENDLY CONS-  The restaurants are a little pricey and there is no picnic facility on-site.

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.
