This review is based more on my kids than myself as I was not inside. The best part about this is that it is free. You take your kid(s) here and drop them off. They are supervised by several trained people. You are informed of how long it will last so that you can be prepared to pick them up... More

Our intention was to see the Hallmark Visitors Center and we were fortunate to stumble on their complimentary Kaleidoscope kids’ craft time. It’s located next door to the actual Hallmark Visitors Center and kids get to run around really fun rooms decorating scraps of paper with paint, markers, glue, you name it. So FUN! As for the actual visitors center,... More

Whenever we are in downtown we make a visit to kaleidoscope. They have multiple 40min sessions everyday, love their wax paints and florescent light exhibit. Kids will have a blast n you can take all their art work to home. It would be great if they had glue or stapler available.

Kaliedoscope was so much fun! I went with my husband, sister, brother-in-law, and our two kids, both age 1. Even though there is not a lot for younger kids, we all had a good time. My husband and I took turns chasing our little one (who had a blast just running around) and making things for him. He really liked... More

This free activity room was a very nice change of pace -- good for the kids to have some hands on time. Even my teens got in on the fun. The glow in the dark room was fun. Was disappointed that the markers were not in working condition. There was also an overall sweaty child smell to the space. Seemed... More

Liked that this was a free activity and the whole family could join in the fun. Kids 3-11 (in my opinion) can enjoy all sorts of activities from making puzzles to painting with glow in the dark paints. Fun sound rooms and many other projects.

This was an amazing experience for my kids age 9 and 5. Lots of things to get there creative juices flowing. The glow in the dark room was the best. Love it. The only problem was there is not much for younger kids to do. My 1 year old was not entertained at all because there was noting for the... More

Kids and Grow ups had a great time. Would love to stay longer or go back for more time to make crafts. Definitely will do again.

Coming from Legoland -- and my kids like this even better and it's FREE! How fun, engaging -- we loved the melted crayon room and the puzzle maker. Be sure to get tickets in advance!
