AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Across the street from the Embarcadero, the New Children's Museum is one of our favorite haunts, filled with fun hands-on exhibits including the 2D Crayon Physics computer game that shows kids' drawings turning into physical objects, Teen Studio silkscreening workshops, and the Octopus bubble fountain where kids make their own bubble blowing tools. With so many fun activities the New Children's Museum is one of the top things to do while visiting San Diego with your family.

Take a look at the upcoming shows for fall including a visit with author Kathleen Krull, an episode about the history of the banjo and just in time for Veteran's Day, an interview with a World War II Veteran Along with the original content created by the professional staff, MEET ME AT THE CORNER is open to kid- produced content.The current video was submitted by 11 year old Sam. He interviews an animal behaviorist at the Denver Zoo. It is obvious that the episode was written and filmed by Sam but the MMATC staff did a great job of editing and adding photos and links to take the episode to a new level MEET ME AT THE CORNER, Virtual Field Trips for Kids ( is a series of educational video podcasts for kids ages 6-12.
