The kids with us loved the place and we stayed much longer than I would have thought from first impressions. Overall, the exhibits are a little tired. And oddly, I don't get a particularly cheerful vibe from any of the staff. But again, the kids loved it. The restaurant, the grocery store, the news room, the ambulance, the bubble center,... More

We were traveling with a 2 year old and a baby. We stopped here for about 45 minutes. It was a good place to stretch our legs. We had to carry out our 2 year old crying because she wanted to stay. I only gave 4 stars for a variety of adult reasons. She would have given it 5 stars... More

My kids who are 4 and 2 loved it Everything and I do mean everything is hands on. From taking care of pets in the animal hospital to giant bubbles to grocery shopping in the Winn Dixie market. Parents be prepared to participate in the activities with your child. My only thing I wondered about was how often are the... More

small museum, has centers for kids to play in, i.e., vet office, shopping store, ambulance they can crawl in, bubble center. It didn't seem to have anything new since last year...if you need somewhere to go with the 6 and under group, it works.

We went because we had never been & weren't really impressed. My son had fun but it looked kinda run down.

This is a nice children's museum with lots of interactive exhibits. There is a vet office, bank, circus, ambulance, grocery store, restaurant, bubble station, dentist office, news station and a few others. Great place to take kids.

I visited the children's museum in december with my boyfriend and two children. One is of the age of 8 and the other is the age of 12. Both are completely different even though there is a little age gap. With that being known and said, the children's museum bonded the two together our whole evening. I myself was lost... More

Have been here several times with two little ones over the past few years. The place is a little on the small side. The displays are very interactive. The kids can grab and touch just about everything in sight. Certainly better for the 8 and under crowd. Older kids might not be very impressed. It is disappointing that there has... More

This is a very cool place for kids. Everything is hands on and, while its not huge inside, there is lots to do. They have a Vet Hospital, Supermarket, restaurant, winter village display, ambulance, bubble center, large play area for little ones, lots of stuff to build, a craft room with free crafts (today it was pinecone Christmas trees &...
