This is worth a half a day for younger kids and longer for older kids. We took an 18 month old and a 3 year old on the 1st day of July. It was too hot and muggy to do much outside. My younger niece was entertained following us around from room to room. My older niece loved leading us... More

In addition there are several workshops throughout the day. I was there on a Sunday in June 2014 and on that day there was face painting, an art workshop (the children made... More

I brought my 8 year old and 4 year old nieces ~ we all had a great time! The girls especially loved the dinosaur area, the bubble area, the restaurant area, the doctor area and veterinary area. They pretty much loved the place!! I have never been there before and found it amazing! The food is a little pricey ~... More

We've been here a number of times. The exhibits are a little dated but my daughter loves it. They have updated the bubble area and making a huge bubble around a person is fun for everyone!

A great place to take the kids for many different playing and learning environments. Great opportunities to explore cultures, occupations, science, and creativity through exhibits formed for learning for children.

My mom and I go here often with my nephew! He loves it. The museum is clean, lots of variety, and has an eating area where you can choose to bring lunch or buy it! Great place for a playday.

Great place for little kids. Have not been there since my grandchildren got too big for it, but I understand it's still lots of fun for the five and under set.
