You can use this as a destination for the grandkids several times,as they will only get through two or three areas in a three hour period, and then it's time for lunch or closing or grandparents' crashing.

It is a good place if your group averages under 9 years old. My girls were just too old to appreciate the exhibits to their fullest.

This is a great place to take your children but it is not to friendly with exchanges in other parts of the country. Wish they also updated more often.

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!
