Lots of educational/play exhibits in a reconfigured schoolhouse. Some are getting a bit shop worn but the kids don't seem to mind. Free parking but the lot is small.

As a child I loved exploring this museum and now my son is ale to laugh and play while exploring the various exhibits. Unfortunately, the overall lack of cleanliness and malfunctioning/broken/missing exhibit tools/items is very concerning. There are numerous items throughout the entire museum that are not doing what they should be doing (ie dishwasher display, egg warmer, screens/video in... More

Took 2 year old grandchildren, they thought it was fun and had lots to do especially if there were any toys involved. Not quite what I thought it would be, more of a play place for the kids, lots of it was more for older kids.

This place is not bad at all but i would not really call it a museum because well its more hands on and fun for little kids. This place is good if you are there for about 2-3 hours,but is pretty unsanitary. One of the rooms feature an road which leads to a mini store and includes fake foods and... More

This was ok, found it in need of fresh paint/updating and more interactive options. Kids fave were the plasma cars. Staff were nice. In all we found it ok and our kids are the reason for the rating we would have scored lower.

We've gone here quite a few times. The experience is always enjoyable for younger kids, although don't plan on spending more than a few hours here. Nothing has changed much, which makes going often not as exciting - wish they would change some of the activities a bit. They do have special visitors and activities in the main room, which... More

It is worth going in for a few hours. There is nothing that we disliked, but wish they made it even better and make it more fun for kids.

We absolutely love the children's museum. Its fantastic for younger children. It has great learning potential while children have a blast. They get to explore different work environments based on play, such as McDonald's and fire fighters. They offer organized workshops and having entertaining staff. Everything is geared to younger children exploring, learning and most importantly having fun!

I used to take my children to the museum when they were young. It was one of our favourite places to go. They are older now (17 and 20), and we had a chance to take my nephew who is 5. I was so disappointed to see how run down the mueum has become. There were some new parts which... More

When ever our grand-daughter comes to visit one of her first questions is "can we go to the children's museum?". She loves it! There are lots of things to occupy them easily for several hours. It is defiantly a winner! Lots of other kids to play with as well.
