This is a great place for kids, buy a season pass and go everyday if you want to. Kids are so excited to learn, play, explore and create here. I've been hundreds of times and my grandsons have never once said "I'm bored, let's go". There is coloring, arts, crafts, books, costumes, mazes, water fun, outdoor fun, indoor fun, race... More

This is a fun place for kids with a lot for them to do. The big problem is that adults have to pay the $10 admission also yet don't get to do anything but watch the kids. So with the four adults and one child, we paid $50 to watch my daughter play. I could understand if adults paid $5... More

Inside the museum there is water activities and so many things to get your kids moving and grooving...They have recently opened up the dance studio and the kids stage. There is... More

My 9 year old grand daughter had a blast. There is such a variety of things to do, nice and cool on a very hot day as well as educational. Even though there were lots of people nothing was crowded. The ladies that worked in the art & activity area were wonderful. If you have children definitely a must do.

I took my two granddaughters here around noon on a weekday. We had a quick lunch of pizza at the snack bar overlooking the activities. Great way to plan your attack on the museum. Several levels of varied activities. Educational, interactive, interesting, imaginative. Human Body area, library & dress up area, building & water play areas. Underground area. We were... More

When my 9-year-old son and I walked in, I thought, Uh-oh, this looks really little kid oriented. We ate at the cafe, which was great! Good variety for children and adults! Then we went exploring and I was very relieved. Not only was there plenty for my 9-year-old, but I was able to have a great time, too. There are... More

This was a great day for the whole family. I highly recommend this museum for all ages, and parents too. I had fun as well as the kids. You can do everything they get to do.

Lots of animals, fish and information for kids to see. Learning programs are great and information is presented for all ages to understand. Older teens will be bored quickly but the little kids will love it. Worth a trip and inexpensive.

the kids had so much fun and there was a lot for them to do. Even my 9 year old didn't get bored. They had a Lorax art class that day and the instructor was very good and patient with the children and they were so proud of their drawings.

This is a great museum to visit with your children. It can get a little crowded and hectic, but the kids didn't seem to mind at all. Countless activities and plenty to do!
