Extractions: "The Children's Museum at Yunker Farm shows youngsters the wonders and fun of nature and the agricultural world around them. But it's more than a museum. The displays are built to involve children in demonstrations, hands-on experiments and one fascinating learning project after another. For example, children can watch a display of live bees, then crawl into and explore a section of honeycomb. Popular features of the museum include the bubble area and an exhibit of animal skins and bones."
