She absolutely loved the water room, nursery and exhibits. If she didn't need a nap she would have stayed all day. Bring a bathing suit for the water room. Can't wait to take her back.

We love the children's museum! So much so we have a membership. If we HAD to pick a favorite exhibit if would be the art zone but really every room in this museum is equally good!

We took our 3 year old not knowing what to expect and she had a blast! 4 hours flew by and there is something for all age groups. She loved the Eric Carle exhibit and that wall maze that kind of reminds me of an ant farm.

Our 3 year old loved it. We spent about 4 to 4 hours here while visiting for the weekend. They have a lot of hands on activities for kids of all ages. Definitely recommend going if you are in town with little ones.

This is a good place to tour with your small children or grandchildren. This is a "Hands On" adventure which is very exciting and enjoyable for children. We would recommend this tour.

As soon as you enter the museum you're surrounded by activities that will make your children smile and entertain you as well. From art projects you just CAN'T do at home (or won't because they make too much of a mess and you don't want to clean it up on your own!) to experimental toys from the amazing students at... More

My kids, ages 6 and 11 were both thoroughly entertained at this museum. Their favorites were the Limb Bender, The Garage and the Gravity Room sections.
