This is a fun and good learning for the younger kids. I would say that most 3-5 year olds would have a great time. 6-8 year olds would like some things. Older than that are likely to be bored. Its a nice way to spend some time for the kids if you are at the mall, or just need to... More

We bought a family membership for my daughter and her son for a Christmas present. Our grandson is 3 1/2 years old. While he was excited to go at first, he quickly became tired of it. When they moved back home with us, we tried to expand the family members who could take advantage of the membership (since we lived... More

Prior to purchasing tickets at $8 a piece I asked what the age range for this museum was, and the answer was 4-11. There is no way an 11 year old is not bored after a half hour. My daughter is 6 years old and she enjoyed some aspects of the museum including the Lego room and the flight room;... More

We have been to children's museums all over the country. This one amazing! The exhibits are educational, fun and interactive. Our children did not want to leave! Great place to go and then head to do some ice skating in the mall!

They do a very good job at this museum. Lots of hands on fun. Clean. Like most children's museums, it is really for the 2nd grade on down crowd and that is fine with us. It is just the right size for her to have plenty of fun, see it all, then be tired and ready to go. The only... More

I babysit during the summers and have been here the past two summers with both of my kids. They have loved it both summers and keep asking to return. It is reasonably priced and there is so much to do-whether it be from a puppet show, to a kid sized grocery store, to a lego center, train center, pizza kid... More

Good fun for young children. Educational activities for young children. Not designed for older kids. Well worth the admission.

My daughter loves this place! She's been many times. Closed on Mondays. Piece of advice trying to take your littlest ones on week days when school is in session. You'll have a much easier time getting to everything than on weekends/summer. But either way it's a good time for them.
