My 2 year old loves the natural history museum, which really surprised me because I always found them boring as a child. We go almost weekly, and generally spend 2-3 hours each time. He likes talking to me about the taxidermied exhibits, and identifying the animals. We visit "Lucy" and the dinosaurs. They also have a children's play room that is great (play dinosaurs, various puzzles, some amphibians/spiders in aquariums, and "fossil dig" sand table). Ours also has a nice, but small, live animal habitat component outside for native species like otters. He doesn't tolerate the planetarium or the "natural phenomena" parts of the museum yet. Odds are good you have something similar near you, maybe try it out.
