I took my kids and nephew here while on vacation in Biloxi and they loved it! Great indoor/outdoor fun. I would highly recommend.

I have been on the Mississippi gulf coast for two years and never knew this place existed! However, now that I know about it, we won't be missing out any more! I took my five year old here and she was begging to come again before we even left the parking lot. It is truly a gem here in MS.... More

We can not go to Ms. without stopping there, it is not packed , the kids have so much fun last time we stayed for 3.5 hours and if the place wasn't closing we would have not got them out of there. We have brought others with us and the adults liked it as much as the kids.

Our grand daughter (9) had a blast. We enjoyed watching and interacting with her. Lets them use their imagination to play real life experiences. She made new friends while play acting in the different areas. Don't miss the outside activities.

I went here with my parents and small nephew last year. There was plenty of stuff to do with a 4 year old and it's great on a rainy day. There is a grocery shopping area that he enjoyed playing a cashier at. There is a dress up station with old fancy clothes for both boys and girls. There is... More

This is an entertaining place for small children, but wish it had more to offer. Since we have visited several times, my child is now a little bored with the same activities. Change would be nice.

Our 3 young children (2, 5, and 7) all had a blast. It was a great way to have fun on a rainy day that limited much time at the pool or beach. We went at 3:00 on a week day to get the $3 rate, which was very reasonable. Highly recommend as a nice place to let little ones... More

This place sticks out in my mind as one of my favorite places to visit when I spent my summers on the gulf coast as a child. The exhibits really do allow children to feel like they really are operating a post office, grocery store, etc! I highly highly recommend this place!
