Marbles Kids Museum is a fantastic children's museum with lots to do! It is in a modern two-storey building with cool architecture. There are many spots to play, sponsored by tech companies in the area. Kids love the money area where they can load balls into tubes and also run a pizza parlor or a lemonade stand.

There is also an IMAX theater at this museum!
After, eat at Big Ed's City Market, a two block walk south. Or if you feel like delicious Cuban food, eat at Oakwood Cafe, two blocks north. Or drive seven minutes west to Morgan Street- older kids will enjoy the classy under-the-sea atmosphere inside Irregardless Cafe. 
Two blocks north, check out the free NC Museum of History and the free NC Museum of Natural Sciences.
Six minutes drive to the west, walk around the central park of Raleigh, Pullen Park. You can ride a carousel, a mini train, kiddie boats, or paddle boats! The playground is also awesome.
For a less crowded and very beautiful children's museum, check out Children's Museum of Alamance County, 30 minutes west of Durham.
