A fun place for the kids

The kids will love this of all ages. Many hands on things to do for the kids. The adults will feel like kids again. Great price for the fun!

Had the family in for the holidays and there were a number of grandchildren. Took them here on a rainy day and we all enjoyed ourselves, especially the children. Very hands on atmosphere and totally kid friendly. Could easily have spent the entire afternoon. If you have small children, this is the place for you!

Big Fire truck with real firehouse, fire boots and coats to try on. Conductor's hat and coat for the giant train. Matter of fact there are always... More

Great place for the kids to explore and grow. Worth a visit and a particularly good rainy day activity. I'm always surprised how they have their favorites but will gravitate to other activities each time.

Our 9 and 8 yr old granddaughters spent a happy hour here preparing our meals in the wonderful 50's theme restaurant! It is just adorable with a booth, cafe table and counter with stools. They also enjoyed the delightful store and post office areas, and the bank area. It is so great to watch kids use their imaginations instead of... More

My three year daughter had a good time in the museum, but I wouldn't recommend it for kids much older than that. I think older kids would be bored quickly.

On our "must do" list when we visit Satatoga Springs. My six year old loves it, although there are many things that need to be repaired/replaced/refreshed Cleanliness, especially of stuffed animals, is an issue. A lot of things to do and explore, a welcome addition to our repertoire.
