Good for toddlers I suppose but the "museum" aspect of it was a huge let down. And at $13 a kid, we stayed for 5 min as my 6yr old was bored and disappointed. For that about of $ and it's not a donation to anything, I asked for a refund and walked outside to the playground across the parking... More

I had friends in town and they were heading here to entertain their 2 1/2 year old. I was under the impression that it was a museum. Do not be fooled, it slightly resembles a museum, however it is more like a play place. The entry fees are reasonable, except the adults have to pay!!! There is NOTHING here for... More

There are a lot of activities and we found the staff to be very good with our 3 and 7 year old grandsons. We went on a day that they had a bit too much sun the day before and it wasn't overly crowded. Not sure it would be a good place on a rainy day. If you're looking for... More

Always something new..... helpful staff, lots for little ones under the age of 6..... by then, probably not interested...... although they have added a Wi area for age 5 and up. We have a grandparent membership so they can go anytime once we pay the yearly fee. A good bargain with 5 grandchildren under the age of 7!

I took my grand daughter there on a rainy day to celebrate the end of school. She had a blast and would have stayed all day if she could. They have a boat you can fish from but it was a bit unsafe, so you'll need to watch them on that feature.

Having been to the National Museum of Play in Rochester, NY, I was overly disappointed to arrive at this "museum" in Kitty Hawk. It's about the size of a large living room and it's more or less a daycare or romper room. Yes, there are lots of toys and activities and kids love it (kids can play with dirt and... More

Something to do on a cold or rainy day! Lots of great people. Children under 87 years old will have a blast. Doesn't look like much, but everytime I leave my 5 and 8 year old never want to leave.

My 4yo had a blast here. We were there for over an hour, and she was begging to stay when I said it was time to go. The exhibits are fun, if a little worn, and she enjoyed all of them - the fishing boat was her favorite. I did find the place to be a little dirty, and I... More

While on vacation, I brought my 19 month old to this place. I personally thought he had a great time he was entertained. However, I was very dissapointed with the staff. They were not friendly towards my son and I but clearly friendly with the other families. Because I was on vacation, I was dressed comfortably and by looking at... More
