This museum outstanding, activities for all ages are well defined, have constant supervision, different to other children museums we have seen in the past. Needless to say the kids had a blast, we were so impressed with the overall condition which is very well kept for a children's museum. This place is a must for toddlers and young kids in... More

Name is a little deception. The "museum" is really a very open space for various hands on activities. Unfortunately, older, unsupervised children tend to run from exhibit to another and my granddaughter at age 4 had to battle for an opportunity to get access to activities. If you want to go inside and let the kids burn off some energy,... More

This is a lot of fun for little kids but older ones will be bored quickly. Don't rush through it; there's not as much to do as it looks like at first. It kind of just ends and you have to turn around and go back. I heard more than one parent echo my sentiment: oh, that's it, it looks... More

We went to the museum one rainy, summer day. There were a ton of children, from families to summer camps, needless to say, it was crowded. We brought a 1 year old boy and 7 year old girl. This was our first time at the museum and found it to have activities for both of the above aged children. It... More

Great place for the kids, but in the middle of summer the place was a zoo. My daughter decided that she would obtain a family pass in September, after the children returned to school. My grandchildren (aged 2 and 4) loved it at first, but became overwhelmed, when it appeared as at least three different summer day camps arrived at... More

My boy loves this place. There are all sorts of learning experiences that keep you coming back for more. We enjoy it, but I think it's probably only good for ages about 10 and under.

This place is fun for a wide range of ages. They advertise 12 and under, but my middle schooler liked it and hung with her little sister the whole day! There is only one place to eat (Subway) and they ran out of food by 3:00 so be prepared to stand in line for awhile. We waited until just before... More
