My kids spent hours in there making creation after creation! We had so many creations that the staff got me a box to carry everything in! My daughter gave the front... More

This place was LOVED by my young children (under 8) We spend about 3 hours playing house and store and firemen and they would have loved to have stayed longer!

My children enjoyed this place when we visited the area when they were younger but age 10 is where the magic wears thin. If older preschoolers are involved it is great.

Wonderful experience. Great fun. Different exhibits to occupy the children. Prices reasonable. Items were kept off floor by staff. Make sure you visit this childrens museum. Picnic area outside so bring your lunches and let the kids play on the outdoor play area.

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
