We have been here numerous times with my granddaughter. There was so much for her to do! She especially likes the area which deals with water and motion. The craft areas are holiday appropriate, providing materials for making decorations, or just drawing cutting paper and pasting. They have a simulated grocery store, a farm complete with animals, a fire station... More

This place is awesome for kids 6 months to 10-12 years old. This is a hands on kids museum that let's kids pretend to be everything from firefighters, to cooks, builders, artists and more!!! We have been to this museum about 30 times since it has opened and the kids always have a great time!!

My 4 year old son had a blast playing here for hours, and he often asks to go back, but the price is too steep to visit often. I just hate places where I have to pay for myself to get in, when my son is the only one playing. If I take him to Monkey Joes, Sports Connection or... More

We visited this place 1 week ago on Saturday around noon. The place was busy but not too crowded. It is probably more suitable and fun for young kids (from toddlers to 7 or 8 years of age or depending on their liking/level). To me, it is a decent, educational playground (compared to McDonald's playplace). It is well kept and... More

Great place for small kids! There is lots of stations for kids to choose from as well as two levels. There is not a food vendor or concession stand but you can bring a lunch or snack and eat at their tables. There are couple vending machines. However there is only a couple tables. The only negative would be its... More

Great place to learn and play. We have also been to Edventure Childrens in Columbia and Marbles is a fantastic value and the exhibits seem better maintained.

Visited this location with my Grand kids after eating in Cafe 100 just down the block. Parking is in back and free on Sunday. Kids up to 7 or 8 will be thrilled by the multitude of activities. Fire Engines,race cars,Doctor and Veterinary offices, Diner and Supermarket it doesn't stop. And there are sing along shows also.

I have taken my grandchildren to this fun spot on many occasions. It is pretty creative and educational but really disguised as fun. If you will use it a bunch it is best to get a membership as it can be expensive for singular uses.

Both times our granddaughters came from out of state to visit, we came here. All day enjoyment for younger children. Kids over 10 would be better suited to the discovery in Charlotte. Water play for the very young, going to the airport, try out the firetruck, take a wander through a submarine, walk a pirate ship, be a mechanic and... More
