I brought my young daughter here, she really enjoyed playing in the Vet Clinic, the Krispy Kreme doughnut factory, and the Food Lion. Even though it was fairly busy (Saturday), she still got to participate in all the activity rooms. The price is decent, we spent about half a day there and that was plenty. They had a special brain... More

My 5 year old daughter loves going here. She asks to go here all the time. It is probably a 4 hour trip to do everything and enjoy it. You as the parent will get bored way before the kids do. My daughters favorite is the climbing apparatus as soon as you walk in and the Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. She... More

I must say I was very pleased with the museum. I hosted my daughters 4th birthday party and I honestly could not have chosen a better place. They took care of the invitations, party favors, the craft... I mean, it was nice to have someone to somewhat handle the party details. I gave them the theme and the executed them... More

Not worth the money - not very engaging and more like a daycare playroom. Nothing like the hours of fun exploring the emergency vehicles or filling the mock shopping cart. The grocery store had flat, felt vegetables and my child got very bored very quickly. The sock skating is dangerous and I witnessed a collision between two children that ended... More

I took my almost 4 year old son herected on a weekday. It was crowded, but manageable. He had an absolute blast and begs to go now. We were there for 3 hours before I realized it. My only complaint would be that to buy an annual pass, you're paying for one child and 2 adults. That seems silly. I... More

my two girls (4 & 3) enjoy this museum. It was nice and lot of things they loved play in. Although, one reason why I don't come here often as much I go to greensboro's museum because this one is not one level floor building. Otherwise, it's pretty fun and worth the price.

Had our grand daughter's 5th birthday party here. Great fun for kids but stressful for parents. Room too small to accommodate 15 kids & parents, room was extremely cold & time limited to first hour. With kids arriving at different times during the first 15 min it shortened time to about 45 min to have cake & open gifts then... More

My review is a little bit different. I don't have kids and I didn't go there with children. I rented space after hours at the museum to hold my mother's memorial service. We wanted someplace cheerful, colorful, and upbeat to celebrate my mother's life. The museum was a perfect location. The entire staff went above and beyond to help me... More
