Great for my 2 year old and 6 year old. Lots of different hands on activities. The diner and pizzeria were favorites. The science area was also great. We had fun but some areas were a little worn down and watch out for pre school trips. It got very crowded!

If you have children under 7, this is the place to go! There are so many hands on things to do. Just beware the kids will not want to leave!

My son loved this museum. Loads of things to do that were an appropriate age for him. The rooms are set up with sign for parents to help their children of targeted ages get the most out of the display through a skill or experience. We loved climbing and playing right along with our son. We look forward to coming... More

There were a couple good parts of this museum, which made me give it a "poor" rating instead of "terrible." The best parts were the dinosaur room and the bubble center, where you can form a large bubble around your child. In the dinosaur room there were many things to see and do, including a sliding board, life-sized dinosaur models... More

We just had a really fun day here. It offers so much for children to do. From bubble experiments, to pretend diner/California Pizza Kitchen, and Healing babies at a Cooper Hospital look alike. There are so many more sections too. Everything was very clean. Go early because it does get crowded with field trips/ summer camp. You can also get... More
