Children's Discovery Museum (Augusta). This museum offers opportunities for children to explore as well as indulge their interests. Budding naturalists, for instance, will enjoy the museum's Touch Tank for Kids where they can witness crabs eating or hold a starfish. Youngsters interested in cooking can prepare imaginary meals at the museum's play area restaurant while would-be capitalists can learn about economics in the children's bank. The Engineering/Transportation/Construction exhibit introduces concepts such as drafting and surveying to children by enabling them to design their own roads and bridges. The art studio affords young artists an opportunity to express themselves in a variety of media.
