I brought my niece here for a day of fun. She loved it, of course. I feel it's really for younger children. Older kids may get bored. There is a lot to do, and everything is a learning experience. The price for children could be lower. The surrounding area has a park for kids to run around too. Worth checking... More

This place is huge and simply amazing. For energetic, crazy toddlers who want to run wild and touch everything, it's a dream come true. They get to do just that on 2 huge levels, with hours of things to do. The bottom floor has a huge water play area and a sandbox, and the upper level has everything imaginable from... More

My 6 year old, grandpa, and I all loved Glazer equally as much! I feel like whenever we go anywhere I'm constantly having to tell my little guy to stop touching things, literally everything here is hands on so he got to touch away! They can't do anything wrong here. It was a Sunday well spent!

We went there and my kids are 8 and 12 and they had some fun, but for them it was kind of boring. It's honestly for younger children.

If you have kids you have to take them here. The entrance fees are reasonable. and there is a subway inside for food so you dont even have to leave to grab a bite to eat. There are so many little areas of fun in there for kids...you simply have to go to see for yourself!!!

I visited on a Sunday afternoon with my 2 year old. There is an admission fee for adults and children 2 years and older, so I think it was just under $25 for the two of us. There is a nice water fountain for chidlren to play in just outside the museum entrance, which is a nice touch on hot... More

I brought my kids here for Target Tuesday (free admission) to meet Thomas the Train and see all the exhibits. This place is super clean and beautiful. So much for kids to learn, see and do. I was very impressed with all the different activities there were from learning about bones and muscle, to a kids' theatre. Also, the gift... More
