AAA Editor Notes
Lynn Meadows Discovery Center is 3.4 mi. e. on US 90 (Beach Blvd./Beach Dr.) from jct. US 49, then .1 mi. n. to 246 Dolan Ave. Housed in a renovated 1915 elementary school, this museum educates youngsters via a number of diverse interactive settings. Kids can sort through seafood and vegetables at a grocery store; operate a crane at The Port; check in at the Dolan Avenue Depot and role play in a train dining car; predict and test hypotheses when they turn knobs to change airflow which makes scarves fly through the Amazing Airways tubes; and learn about construction basics at Kid's Street, a mini cul-de-sac with four scaled-down houses.

Highlights of the 7.5-acre, oak-shaded grounds include Bear Creek's cabin and wooden train; the Tree House Village, which offers structures that can be climbed by visitors of any age; and On the Green offering outdoor fun with a beautiful view overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. A variety of special events, theater presentations and workshops are offered throughout the year.

Picnicking is permitted.
