My 3 year old absolutely loved this place! He loved climbing up the beanstalk. The outdoor net was fun as well. It was only $15 for the two of us to get in. Also had free lockers so I could lock up my purse. Will definitely be going back next time!

We enjoyed our trip to the Children's Museum. The cost is about $7 per person. There are two floors. The children can climb up a beanstalk to the second floor. Parents can take the stairs or elevator. There is plenty of seating for parents who supervise while their children play. There is a storybook area where children can milk a... More

Have been a couple of times with my nieces and they absolutely love it. It is both fun and educational. I would certainly recommend this as an activity for ages 4 to 7. There is a charge for everyone to enter. You can stay as long as you like depending on your plans for the day.

My kids were 5 and 7 at the time of our visit. The admission price is a little high (adults are charged along with the kids), but I think it is well worth it. My kids played for three hours and could have stayed longer had we not had plans later that day. The "exhibits" are really play areas that... More

The attractions were really good, including a playground the children can climb on outside, but to get in its about $6 a person.

Went with our son and his family and loved it!! Our grandson loves this museum and they take him often. Especially fun is the Krispee Kreme donut area where all the kids have a blast. This hands on concept for kids and grandparents now is such a great interactive way to have fun with them. There is so much to... More

We have a 19 month old and we have been to the museum about 4 times in the last few months. We went ahead and purchased the membership because it saves money if you go a few times. Our daughter loves it all. We took the stroller the first time, but the parking is really close and free so now... More
