Ben Stiller isn’t the only one who enjoys a night in the museum. The funky Austin Children’s Museum, in the Second Street District, is one of the town’s grooviest locations — it’s as if Godzilla had relocated to Texas. For the ultimate, plan a sleepover (really, Godzilla won’t get you): Customized parties offer hands-on activities and experiences, make-and-take crafts, projected movies on the big screen, free play in the Museum, and scavenger hunts geared to specific requests, not to mention the pizza and soda, the Museum promises — and delivers.
