Although this museum is quite small, it has exhibits that allow kids to use their imaginations. It has a small Thomas the train set up --- very popular. The bank and supermarket are very cute and well maintained. There are clothes for dress up and a small room in the back for crafts.

i take one of the children i babysit here on rainy days. he loves the grocery store section and the piano. there are several rooms, each with a different theme. if your child does not get along well with others, you might want to consider going somewhere else--sharing and patience are at the heart of this establishment. it is inside...

Not sure it is worth the $15 we paid for me, my mom and my 4 yr old, but he had fun with a lot of pretend play options to choose from. Some neat hisotrical info about the area, but you will pretty much be done after about an hour there.

It is an old house and although my kids enjoyed it and the people is very pleasant it is not much to do. You are out in an hour the most.

Originally an old house made into a play paradise for kids. (Not really a museum so the name is kind of misleading although there are som old toys and stuff there) Different rooms featuring different toys to play with and things to look at like brio trains, dress up closet, supermarket, etc, etc. Our 3 years old did not want...

It's very small. I took my 5 year old and my 3 year old. It was ok for a little while. The museum was closing at 4pm and the woman in charge came around at 3:30 cleaning everything up. My kids were still playing with the toys. She also snapped at my son when he touched the scotch tape. He... More

This is a hands on Museum. Great for ages 1-5. I took my 9 year old and 7 month old. it was a little to young for the 9 year old and a little to old for the 7 month old. The cost is 3 pp. We had a much better time at the Sugar Sand Park.
