Great for kids of all ages. Plenty to do and all hands on. Not crowded during the week. Seperate area for younger kids and babies. Staff was friendly.

They have just about everything you can imagine here for kids. An indoor playground, splash and play, musical instruments, building, digging for fossils, and arts and crafts. It may not look like much at first, but let me tell you; we were there for 3 hours. Our daughter did not want to leave. She was having so much fun. Honestly...we... More

This was a last minute add for our family last Sunday. Were pleased to find out they had earlier hours due to the Labor Day holiday weekend, so we walked over from hotel. And - if you show your Aquarium ticket, you get a great discount! We were apprehensive that our 2 year old wouldn't really enjoy it, but once... More

We spent about 4 hours here. It's not that big of a place, so I was surprised that it kept my kids' attention for so long. They would have stayed longer if I had let them, but we had somewhere else to be. It's in walking distance to a number of restaurants as well as the aquarium. We parked directly... More

We decided to check out downtown instead of waiting in a 2 hour line for Ruby Falls and came across this place. It is more than your typical children's museum, it is a play place too. We had a blast! The store is packed with unique children toys, activities and games.

The kids had a great time. It was packed because there were a lot of kids and grown-ups had to accompany kids at all times. The hands-on activities were fun and educational. There were things to climb on, things to mold and paint, and electrical circuits to complete. In the space provided, there were enough activities to keep children occupied... More
