It gave us something to do. At first my kids were more observant but after a while they got into it and mainly liked the bubble room and the market area. Not sure if it is the best place for a 6 and 7 year old but maybe once the construction is done it will be. I'm confused as to... More

Although small, they had lots of great things for kids to do. Our two year-old loved everything, especially the fire truck. I felt the price was too high for what they had, but our kid really enjoyed it so it was worth it. Will be back when they finish the additions later this year.

My kids and I absolutely love this place. There is ALWAYS something interesting not only for them, but me as well. The staff is great. The facility is clean and well maintained. And the exhibits are fun. Certainly worth a visit. Great way to spend a few hours

We came in here one mid morning to let the kids have a little fun and give them a chance to explore a bit. Even though they were under construction they still had quite a bit open and available for the kids to explore. Both of mine had fun with the Fire Station on the first floor and the kitchen... More

Truly a fun place for kids and young teenagers. They had some neat exhibits but weren't encouraging my 14 yr old to participate much, but she enjoyed herself anyway. We had some neat photos taken, the museum was well kept and orderly. We enjoyed it but it may be more suited for kids 4-12 or 13.

Giving the place 3 stars for now and we enjoyed it while it lasted. We were there for about an hour total... Before running out of things to do. We took our 14 month old and he really had fun in the bubble room and the fire truck room. We had to help him with everything but he really had... More

We took our seven year old on a weekday. It wasn't very crowded which was nice. I think this place is great for the preschool set. My daughter was interested but most of the exhibits were for younger children. She had a great time on the adjacent playground!

This place is an activity/play center for your kids. For $9 per person the value is just not the for me. Luckily we went on a Monday afternoon so it wasn’t very busy. If it would have been busy I would call it a total rip-off. The bubble room was a big disappointment. The large circles to make big bubbles... More

Not expensive and a great way for kids to explore and to learn. With the new galleries still being constructed it's going to be even better soon

My sister took our kids, ages 2-10, here and they all LOVED it! The younger kids loved it all, and the older kids really liked the bubbles, the painting, and making their own designs and objects out of all the recycled products they had! We went home with sooo much rubbish! We also, went during a school day so there... More
