Tough to answer! There is a lot to see, but it depends how much fun you make it I guess. They wouldn't be able to read things but if you the parent makes it fun and exciting I am sure they will love it. Read the blurbs to them, explain things, you can watch the videos and make it a big deal to sit in the oval office! Show them the sports equipment etc. I think it would all depend on the effort that YOU put in :) good luck!

I don't believe there are food options at the museum. But there are so many fantastic restaurants within a short walk! Hotel restaurants and independent farm to table and other choices abound. We liked the Kitchen Counter at Wolfgang Puck as well as Butcher's Union and the Knickerbocker, especially. The Littlebird Cafe on Monroe Center is also fantastic. Enjoy!
