The place was very crowded and didn't seem to have ample facility for the number of people. The "birthday rooms" were very small and didn't seem to be adequately ventilated.

This is a great activity for a rainy day or just a day when you want the kids to have a blast. We had an annual membership to this museum for years and it was worth every penny and then some!

Used to take my daughter here, she's 28 now. They've added some amazing features. I now take my grandson and soon my granddaughter as well. Good for ages 18 months and up. The ship and kitchen are my grandsons favorite. You can even stop and have something to eat and continue the fun. The human bubble machine is a winner... More

Visiting the Museum on a rainy was great fun! Awesome fun through hands-on play with the science of movement through vacuum tubes, amazing wonderment of standing inside of a giant bubble. Having the opportunity of being behind or in front of the TV camera at the news and weather desk was incredible! Other play zones are also available to fuel... More

My kids have been coming here for years. Each one of my kids have had their 1st birthday here, but they still love going back even all these years later. If you have little ones you owe it to yourself to introduce them to this local South Jersey treasure.
