You, the NUVO reader, are decidedly not alone in your love for the Children's Museum. NASA's a fan. They gave the museum $675,000 last year to fund an upcoming International Space Station-themed exhibit. Elton John digs it. Remember when he played a 2010 benefit for the museum to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Ryan White's passing? Also madly in love: glass artist Dale Chihuly, Wikipedia's Jimmy Wales and dinosaurs. Plus, kids. They cannot get enough of the world's largest children's museum. And now even adults can check it out, unaccompanied by minors, during occasional Adult Swim events.
