Will engage children's interest and imagination for a couple of hours. Movie Cineplex across the street - Penn Cinema - restaurants short walk away. Great day outing with kids, especially rainy day.

Took our 2 yr there. It was a rainy day so great to be indoors. Lots to do and see. Could use a little tlc. Some things that were supposed to motorized or animated didn't work. But overall a lot of fun.

Having been to many Children's Museums in my years as a parent, I found this one to be like all of the others. The large climbing ball shown in the picture was very different and my kids loved it, I wish it were a little roomier inside of it so I could have tried it too.

Kids love it! Great membership rates. Keeps the kiddos occupied for hours. Clean and kept up, I have no qualms about letting junior loose here to roam and explore and the staff is most friendly!

Took my two year old there today and he seemed to have fun, especially the water area. Takes about an hour to two hours to go through. The place is easy to find with free, ample, and close parking with a Joe's Crab Shack and Iron Hill Brewery in the same lot. Price is reasonable and felt I got what... More

Great for kids! A bit like the Lookout in Bracknell if you know that! But much more modern! Lots of interactive exhibits in a warehouse space by the river. Check out Joe's Crab Shack next door as it's really great! Reward your adults with a Shark Bite or a Mason Jar Margarita! Please drink responsibly!

We took my two year old there. He wasnt intetested in much. What my daughter and i observed was It looked fun but the place is already beat. There are not enough of props for the areas where the kids play and create. The water area is unsupervised: therefore leaving things a mess and the floor very wet. There are... More

We tend to visit once a year. This year the concrete jungle out back had been turned into a mini golf. This is a welcome improvement. Also, the "fishing" area is now a pirate ship, again much better. Everything seemed in better repair also (though the left crew boat is still broken). Note: our 14 yo is now 5'4" and... More

Our first visit with our grandkids ages 8, 7 and 3 and they loved it. It didn't look like much at first but there were surprises at each and every turn. They had a blast climbing the circular dome as you first walk in. All except the little one. He had a hard time maneuvering the tiny spaces. It was... More

There is a lot to see a do. Kids of varying ages all loved it. We enjoy going! It's worth it to get a membership if you plan to go a few times a year.
