Downtown Itinerary With Kids

We have family coming in for a week at the start of November. Grandma, grandpa, brother, sister-in-law, and two boys, ages 4 and 6. They're here for a national science convention, and this time, instead of staying with us, they're staying downtown at the Mayfair.

Brother and dad will be attending meetings, and mom, sister-in-law, and the boys will have days to explore. Starting with downtown, what would you recommend for things to do, places to eat? Remember, the boys are only 4 and 6, so fancy restaurants are a little beyond their attention span.

Things to do?

City Museum
Old Court House
Campbell House?
Downtown library
Shopping at Macy's
Union Station

Places to eat?

Bread Co
Lion's Choice

But I know mom (grandma), likes to eat at nicer places, so what about some of downtown's nicer restaurants that would be okay with a couple of semi-active, nice boys? (appetites are not a problem.)

I was thinking of:

Downtown Cantina
Beffa's (but they won't have a car...they could borrow mine though; that'd work)

There must be some others. What about things to do?

You haven't mentioned any places my 4 and 6 year old kids would like very well. Museums are boring to them except for City Museum.

Turtle Park and the Zoo.

Magic House

Butterfly House
