Visited on a rainy day to get out of the house, should have stayed in. The interior is humid and crowded and many of the "attractions" don't work properly. The biggest concern I have is about the upstairs playroom. There is a baby gate guarding the top of the steps however it is there purely for aesthetics offering a false... More

My Grands loved going to this well done children's museum. They have an area for toddlers and probably up to 10. They have various things for children to do. A space ship, a piirate ship, a kitchen , all for role playing... It is well done and maintained.

I was skeptical about this place upon first glance; however, my kids had a fantastic time. I have two boys ages 3 and 5, and there was plenty for them to do. I would not recommend for children over the age of 10 or so, as my nephew(9) was pretty bored after about 10 minutes. The entire house is open... More

Great place for young children to go exploring,pretending to be a pilot,pirate or builder to name a few centers. They can read a book, draw a picture. Possibilities are endless smiles are abundant and a good time had by all!

My 2 1/2 year old had the BEST time at the Sandbox. We played for 2 1/2 hrs and she could have played longer if we didn't have to eat lunch. There are a ton of creative activities and play areas. Very educational. And the cost is cheap in comparison to all the fun to be had. Perfect for kids... More

Great place to kill some time with kids whom are under 8. Don't go there expecting entertainment for any kids older than that. 2 floors of interactive activities for local or visiting kids. The building is convenient and the staff is friendly. You might get 2-3hrs of entertainment for the kids…Only complaint I had is that you have to pay... More

Tons of things to do. Gets you out of the heat or chill. You need to stop by and let you kids do something different while at the beach

Great place to visit with kids on rainy days when you really don't know how to entertain them! Lots of activities, nice people helping you! And the kids (I had a 4 year old at the time) love it!

Parents and grandparents will enjoy this as much as the young children in your family. This is a hands on experience your children will enjoy. A great break away from the beach or a great way to spend a rainy day. This is a wonderful way to spend a few hours watching the children be children!
