Fun morning event for four kiddos, four parents and a couple grandparents. Even though the place wasn't crowded at all (which we were totally expecting it would be as it was Saturday morning of Memorial Day weekend), we were all pleased that we had the ratio of adults to children that we did. As a grandparent, it would be difficult... More

We have a membership to this Children's museum and i wish I hadn't bothered. I love Children's museums but this has to be the dirtiest one I've ever been to by far! My kids love the prairie dog habitat and the stage downstairs but the habitat is filthy. The face painting area is always a complete disaster, its too bad... More

We frequent the children's museum often. The kids always have a great time. So much to do and see. Many opportunities to learn.

This is a wonderful place to take older children. Our grandson is 5 and I wouldn't take someone younger. Great interactive activities to do. Learn and explore our world and hopefully spark an interest in someone young. Great place for a rainy day.

We took our grandson who is nearly eight even though we were a bit worried he would be too old for the activities. We shouldn't have been concerned because he loved it! There are all sorts of things to do from shopping in a grocery store to face painting to learning about sound waves. He also enjoyed putting together pipes... More

educational, the kids have fun and so do the adults. Supervision is good, exhibits and activities are enjoyable and do change, so go again and again.

This is best for kids age 8 and under, with many hands-on exhibits including a drama/costume stage, scientific apparatuses, pretend grocery, veterinary, pizza, auto mechanics shops and more. There are nearby seating areas at most exhibits, for grandparents whose energy can't quite keep up with that of their kids!

There are so many photo opportunities and hands on experiences at this privately funded zoo. We took in the whole place in just a few hours and had a marvelous time. Highly recommend!

Went with several families and had kids ranging from 1.5 to almost 5. I envisioned it being a nightmare, but I was dead wrong. There was plenty to do for kids of all ages, and always nearby, so we could still keep an eye on everyone without worrying that they were a full floor away. This is a great place... More
