Great for kids

This place was a real hit with our 4 year old boy. It was clean and well organised and the interactives were well considered.

Legos are there and the kids can build their own racing machine and run it in the racing track. It has their own kids... More

Our kids were 10 & 12 and loved it. I wouldn't bring young kids. We visited on a rainy Saturday. It was super crowded and parking was sparse.. We had a city pass so it was a great deal.. Lots of innovative things for kids to experience!

My children and I absolutely love this place! There are so many things for kids and kids at heart to do. There is a toddler area for smaller children as well so they can play in their own area and not get trampled by bigger kids. :-) We always spend several hours here when we come and there's always something...

I have been to several childrens museums and this one surpasses them all! Its massive on the inside with things to do for children of all ages! Our favorite was the little city that gives your child a pretend debit card and they get to complete jobs to earn their paycheck (which can be deposited into an ATM) They can... More

The kids were dying to go see it, when we drove past the building on the way to park they were super-excited !. There were activities for all age groups, as well as even more stuff to do outside the building . We spent hours there during Spring Break, and judging by the crowds, everyone was having a blast.

An entertaining location that I have visited many times both as a child and a parent. I highly recommend this location as it is very educating for children as well as adults. A great way to get the little ones off the couch, and out experiencing what is out there.

My sons enjoyed the many hands on exhibits and also liked the movies that were scheduled to play periodically throughout the day.

You don't need to have a kid, or borrow one, to enjoy the Children's Museum. Goodfor half an hour up to a full day. Lots of interactive stuff.

Took our 10 year old here and she had a BLAST! There is so much to do, so plan on spending some time here. There is a small "city" where kids can do everything from work in a bank to cook in a diner. Lots of exhibits and things to keep kids busy! Highly recommended!
