We were pleasantly surprise at this facility. Both children and adults enjoyed playing here. The most popular area that night was where you could make paper airplanes and put them on a launcher. The colors were stimulating. Everything seems to be interesting in this museum.

For older children I would give the museum only two stars. I am giving it three stars because I feel it would appeal more to children six years old and under. The exhibits were pretty small and spaced out, so although it is three stories, the isn't a whole lot in it. It's pretty basic. This particular day there was... More

The exhibits are fantastic! I took a 5 year old boy and he had his favorite places he wanted to go. He loves to "fly" the plane and climb through the leaves. There were some broken components. Every exhibit we walked into was a major mess except for the Grocery Store where children were putting things away. In the sports... More

My son went here last year and loved it but was disappointed this year because they got rid of exhibits that he liked. He is 10 and I felt he was too old for this. It was good for younger kids. Staff was very nice. Fun hands on things to do.

My 5 year old and 3 year old enjoyed everything that was offered here. We went on a Target Tuesday (FREE ADMISSION!) and though a little crowded, as was expected, there was plenty to do with just a little patience. My girls loved the cool climbing net, the pretend Publix, and the veterinarian's office the most. I'll be back for... More
