Hey there, cardholders! If you and your little ones are interested in learning how to keep healthy this summer, look no further -- the Kidzeum of Health and Science is the place for you!

Located in Springfield, the Kidzeum is committed to fostering life-long learning in children, sparking curiosity in science and inspiring concern for their health and the health of the world around them. Kids can learn about environmental health -- interactive water tables, the agricultural process -- as well as recycling and weather issues. Children are welcome to explore the various community exhibits, learning about why medical personnel, firefighters, construction workers, etc. are vital to their community and how each profession works.

There's also the three-story personal health exhibit, where kids travel through a human body from the legs up through the nose, learning about the various functions of the body and how (and why) everything is interconnected.
