Boston Children's Museum
This recently redone green museum boasts a cool waterfront locale and plenty of activities, from a bubble room to a three-story climbing structure.
Boston's amphibious vehicles are known for "quacking" their way through town. Tours start from three different locations, inlcuding the Museum of Science, so you can wear out the little ones inside beforehand.
