This place is great for little kids. There’s lots of stuff to get their hands on. The girls loved putting their hands in the water and playing with the seaborne wildlife. They can touch everything and play to their hearts content. It is in a neighborhood, so parking is scarce right in front, but a block away is the free... More

Went on an early Saturday morning with 2 little boys (2 and 5 yrs) and managed to do most of the activities before lunch. It seemed more like many playrooms with options to learn on some activities rather than a traditional museum. At the front, there is a toy restaurant/kitchen, a place for some animal viewing (iguana/fish), and a makeshift... More

Great for little kids. Very hands on. They get to touch everything and play with it. Parking is difficult. It's very small, and it's definitely interactive for the parent and child

The city cleaned this area and refurbished the old houses. You can see what it looked like 50-70 years ago. Lots of history to enjoy.

This is above average for a local small-town children's museum. Don't expect a big, fancy place - this was obviously done on a shoestring. They put a lot of thought into th,e experiences and my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter was captivated by the activities, but the exhibits and activities were definitely "home made" not high-tech and professional.

This small little museum is geared to kids and is great for toddlers! My Nephew always asks when he gets to go there and loves all the things to try and touch. It's educational and is an inexpensive outing that's just the right size for kids. Not a whole day activity but you could spend a fat hour hanging there.... More

I went with my 3 kids aged 2-7 and my sister with her 3 same ages. So 6 kids 2-7 and they ALL had a great time! I read the reviews online as did my sister, we were both a little hesitant... And now I wonder if some were a rouse to keep others away. For the 16$ I paid... More

After reading the reviews I was a little skeptical on renting this place for my son's birthday party. But so glad I did. The price was affordable everyone had a great time. The kids enjoyed the touch tank and the petting of the snake and bunnies. I was so surprise that most of my invites are from Oxnard and had... More
