I took my 2 year old grandson during the holiday break and he had fun. Older, apparently unsupervised, kids overwhelmed him a bit, so we spent a lot of time in the quieter dinosaur area, brushing the sand for bones and colouring pictures. It was a good, active, morning for him. But...the museum hasn't been updated since I took my... More

I am a member so I go regularly. It is true that this place could use some basic maintenance. If everything was in good working order it would be truly awesome. That being said it is still a lot of fun for the kids and there are tons of things to do. There are various themed rooms to move around... More

I had heard great things from other people about this museum and was excited to take my daughters, 3 + 6. While my daughters had a nice morning and say they would like to return, I was disappointed by the state the building is it. It is very tired, and needs a lot of basic repairs done. The paint is...

I brought my daughters, aged 3 and 5, to this museum one Thur morning. It was quite a disappointment. Although there were a few exhibits to enjoy, the Arctic section as well as the Dinosaur section, every other part was in need of serious repair and cleaning. The items the children would play with were missing, incomplete or non-functioning. In... More

Haven't been here in years and years but took my daughter and her 4-1/2 year old boy one rainy day this summer ... my daughter actually volunteered for a summer here when she was a young teenager and thought that not much had changed. Found as many others have reviewed that the displays were VERY dated ... not working or... More

Went with my 3 yrs old and 14 yrs old. We went on a Friday evening after 5pm and it was free. I think I would have been disappointed if I had to pay. My 3 yrs old had fun running around but paying close attention to the exhibit; there were things out of place, broken or missing pieces. There... More

As others have stated, the museum is showing it's age and some of the exhibits are not in prime condition. That said, the kids didn't notice and had great fun. We spent about 2 hours there with our 2 & 6 yr olds and would have stayed a bit longer if not for hungry kids. A 2-3 hours visit is... More
