I took my 7year old nephew and it was way too kiddish for him. I think he would have loved it when he was 4.
I brought my niece and her little guys, ages 5 and 7, here while she came for a short visit. It poured outside and we wanted something fun to do.

Over the years, I have visited the Mid-Hudson Children's Museum. Usually though, I visited for the puppet shows. During various times of the year—especially over school holidays and breaks—the museum has presented puppet shows. They are fantastic. The puppets are large—bigger than large children most of the time. There is music, too. The stories depicted come from fairy tales and... More
