I absolutely loved this museum, unfortunately, since our last visit during Christmas (5 Stars then) of last year and our visit this year in May, this place has changed recently. So here I am updated my review, which is not something I really wanted to do, but as a paying member for an entire family, I feel I must let... More

So, my enthusiasm about the unparalleled quality of the many and varied exhibits at this museum is tempered by the hit my wallet took to get in. We had Combo tickets (museum and splash pad ) for 1 adult and 2 kids. It came to was $60! Once I picked my jaw up, we had a ball here. The exhibits... More

Took the kids on a Saturday, to me personally it was a little expensive at $12 per person, and we opted out of the splash pad and outside playground (which was an extra charge). My kids on the other hand loved it so that made the $48 well worth it. We were there for a little over 3 hours and... More

This museum is a must see for children and families. There is so much to do...my kids LOVED it! My 1-year-old son especially loved the wind tunnels for the balls and scarves and the indoor toddler playground area. My 9-yr-old daughter especially enjoyed the grocery store and the bank. If you go during the hot summer months, do yourself a... More

My two boys, ages 6 and 2, loved this. The exhibits inside were fun for both boys. The splash pads were a hit too.

For $12.00 per person, this was a complete waste of money. If you have a 2-4 year old they might enjoy the water feature but this was a waste of money for an 6 year old and older!

I visited with my two boys, ages 6 and 2, my niece and her 9 yr old son. We were very impressed with this small museum. The exhibits were set up in a way that kept all 3 boys engaged at the same exhibit. That was impressive, given the age span. They have an outdoor play area and a splash... More

Great place to bring your kids. They work hard to keep the place in great working order. Lots of interesting things to see and do. You will be here for a few hours, but well worth the time.

I'm glad my daughter and I spent the day here - we were travelling from Australia and while my husband was on a musical tour, my 6 year old and I spent the day. Some of the exhibitions need an upgrade, but that's only from an adults point of view. The food area was not good, but then I'm from... More

Lots of things to do for children. Adults enjoy it too. There was nothing to eat inside maybe because it was Sunday and restaurant was not open. So I recommend that you eat before getting there. You need around 2 hours to go through the attractions.
