There is a great variety of fun kids' activities here. This is a highly recommended outing, especially for preschool and elementary-aged kids. Fun and educational with lots of activities to choose from.

We played mini golf and went on the train ride and spent over an hour inside with all the exhibits. It was great.

Although it is a small museum there is a lot to do. Every room is packed with things to touch and manipulate. There was a man in the music room leading the kids in songs and encouraging them to play different instruments. My daughter loved milking the cow. Plan on spending about 2 hours there. The staff are friendly and... More

I went with my friend and her 3 yr old granddaughter. I am in my early forties. I had a great time. We went on a weekday morning and the place was not very busy. It was rainy outside so we stayed indoors. Our three year old girl knew the place and she painted, listened to music, built, raced and... More

While some things never change, there are a few that shouldn't. Although it is roughly the same experience every time you go your kids will get every penny's worth from this tiny gem. Plus it's a great place to have a birthday party. Even if your name is Scooter. And you're 84.

This place could be fantastic, but it needs work. Like other reviewers mentioned, some of the exhibits are pretty dirty and some are broken. Some of the exhibits are really well done though--so it has so much potential. The train was broken down on the day we were there, so we were disappointed that we didn't get to ride it.... More

It has so much potential. We took our girls ages 3.5, 8.5, 8.5. We spent maybe two hours, and that's because my husband and I went really slow and it caused the kids to engage in things they would have skipped over. It has not changed since we first took our kids 7 or 8 years ago. Displays are broken... More

We went to this museum a year ago with our grandchildren and again yesterday. I was very disappointed, the dispalays have not been updated and did not appear to have been cleaned during that time. Some displays were not working at all. The train was not running a year ago and it was completely missing (supposedly for repairs) yesterday. We... More

You have to allocate at least an hour to stay in the museum. Arts and crafts, scientific facts, games, music, all jam packed in a two-storey house. Place is a bit tight for heavy crowd but sure a loads of fun and learning experience for children ages 10 and below. Entrance fee.

It advertises that it is for children. However, it really is only for pre-preschoolers. Our children were 7 & 8 and made the best of it but were not stimulated. The carousel was pretty cheesy & the locomotive was not running.
