If you are not accompanying kids, this museum will not be very interesting. Nor will your visit be pleasant.

I have been here several times with young children. It has a lot to offer, but just now there are attractions outside which are broken, weeds growing, areas of dirt that are not attractive. I think they need to get in there, and repair things, put a bit of money into landscaping and fix it up.

Absolutely love this place. Very age appropriate for my 3 girls aged 6, 5, and 2. First off there are no parking fees and the entrance costs are inexpensive. Being part of the children's museums reciprocal network gives us a 50% discount on the entry fees. The physics forest is pretty awesome.  I love how each interactive area gives a... More

My kids are 2 and 4 and they are into bugs. This place had spiders, lizards, bees, etc. They had lots of climbing areas, fun digs, bike tracks, water features, and scientific fun activities. It's a small place but we spent half a day exploring all the sections of the museum. It is very interactive that is why my kids... More

This is a wonderful place to take grandchildren and enjoy the looks of joy on their faces as they explore all the different parts of the museum. There is a nice balance of quiet spaces and very active spaces. It is helpful that there is easy parking as well.

Younger kids love this place. They wanted to stay and do it all. Just keep an eye out on your sun exposure, a good part of this is outdoors.

I liked the outdoor exhibits and activities for my boys - ages 5 and 7. They could learn science and have fun at the same time. In the back was a water area and even a small rock climbing wall. I would go there again.

Maybe this place is best suited for children below 10. But the science based activities can also be fun and interesting for older ones.
