Editor's Pick: 

Kids can enjoy the outdoors with the Long Island Children's Museum's seasonal Our Backyard exhibit.

The award-winning outdoor exhibit offers a sensory garden, a water table, and lush plants. There are plenty of interactive elements including a pirate ship wheel, a hand pump to create summer showers on demand, a "fishing" setup, evaporation art, and even a boat race option.

Museum hours are Tuesday-Sunday from 10am to 5pm and most holidays. Extended summer hours where the museum is open daily begin July 5 and run through Labor Day.
