We were so impressed by this place! I wish they were closer to us but we'll make the trip again! My kids had a blast here for 4 hours. There were a ton of areas to make crafts that kids could take home, an educational exhibit about bugs, a glow in the dark room, and an imaginative play area complete... More

We arrived just after they opened with our 2 year old. It was not overly crowded which was wonderful, he was able to enjoy all the activities in the interactive area first. He had the most fun playing on the “pixel wall” and in the weather room. He loved the storm in the weather room and kept running back when... More

Very fun venue. One side is for under 4 with big soft blocks to build forts. Older siblings can go in this side, they just have to stay calm. One side is set up with craft projects for older kids to do. We loved it!.

Came on a fieldtrip with elementary school - the kids LOVED it!!! There was lots of hands on areas for the kids to play after the guided tour. Tour guide was very good with our group. It would have been nice to see more money from different countries though. Overall this is a great museum for kids & adults. There... More

We had family from out of town to entertain and decided to got to AMY. We had a blast. From the oldest child, 14, to the youngest, 2, there was something for everyone. The facilities were clean and well staffed. All of the exhibits were well stocked and engaging. We will definitely be back!

Great hands on activities for toddlers through tweens. Three floors with activities I have never seen before, like driving a tricycle through a "carwash" for the little ones. Not so much into "learning" as into fun. Also there are a lot of places for adults to sit down!!

Small enough to enjoy yet big enough to keep kids busy! I like the size of the place. So great I bought a membership!

I like that this museum changes their theme on a regular basis. It gives us the opportunity to come back and see something different when we visit. I feel they are very reasonably priced. And if you have an Entertainment book, there is a "buy one admission, get one admission free" coupon.
