A page full of links to science centers

I've been taking a close look at the web pages of various science centers and exploratorium around the world. I've compiled some of the links on this page - in case someone else happens to share my interest.
... And by the way, let me know if you do.

Hi Peter
In 2003 I was at the science exploratiorium in Bristol, UK, which was pretty good. The kids there seemed to totally disregard the computer installations, and used much more time on the physically interactive part of the place. Mostly - which also might be relevant for you in your new job - they enjoyed the part where they worked pumps, archimedes snails and other mechanical systems to pump water from one end of the room to the other. It wasn't really a competition, but the kids were trying to move the floating ducks from one tank to the other, in the shortest time possible, collaborating and screaming a lot - looked like lots of fun.
Also, a few years back, I was at the San Jose Tech Museum of Innovation. I guess they are heavily sponsored by local silicon valley industry - they diffinately had a very cool exhibition.
Well, congrats on your new job - I hope to stay updated on the dev. of Universe from your blog. - Martin
