This museum is hours of fun for young children. It is reasonably priced and keeps them busy having fun! My kids really had a great time !

Wasn't too impressed with the lady working the front desk, she didn't seem like she wanted to even be there and a few workers cleaning up after the kids were doing nothing but complaining. Besides that, the kids had a great time! Plenty to keep them busy for hours! They never got bored, and we stayed until they closed!

We're from Chicago and have experience with 2 of our children's museums and we thought this one was great. It was not crowded when we visited on a Friday afternoon and had a really unique outdoor play area. We also thought the indoor displays like the bridge and farm stuff was fun. I would recommend this place if you have... More

This was our first time going and I was nervous about what to expect. We had 2 girls under 7 yrs old and they ran around this place like wild children. The building is bigger then the part we was in, but the kids didn't even notice. We went on Good Friday so some things were not going on, but... More

Awesome!!! Kids had so much fun running around and pretend playing in the grocery store, post office, firehouse, ice cream stand, shoe store n etc. There was so much to do! We stayed there for a good portion of the day. It was super busy at first but around lunch time it died down and was a little more peaceful.... More

We recently went to the museum and had a great time, there was so much to do and the adults had as much fun as my granddaughter who is 19 months did. She was a little young to do some of the activities but could do others and had a good time playing in the water, tree house, fire truck.... More

I really enjoyed how the layout of this place is a town with different areas all in one large space. There were so many kids on Memorial Day weekend Saturday that they sort of organized themselves into a little community. The kids seemed to stay in there self-assumed jobs. There was a cashier in the grocery store, the pizza delivery... More
