My in-laws always take my 2 young sons here when they come into town. My boys love it! The city vehicles are a HUGE hit!

Great place my 4 year old loved it! On the other hand it's really not meant for kids over 7 I would say. My older kids didn't have much fun. :)

My 3 1/2 year old grandson remembered this from 2013 when he visited. He asked to go back to the "firetruck" and the "train"; we knew exactly where he wanted to go. He said it was "fun, fun, fun!"

Kids can run around the relatively compact museum without losing their parents, only one way in and out so no chance of them escaping, giving parents a chance to take a breath. Outdoor Edible Garden area closed in the Winter but for little ones who are fascinated with chickens and rabbits there are a couple of them out back. But... More

This place has it all. Where was it when I was a kid? Kids get to climb into real airplanes, fired trucks, police cars and trucks. They even have an doctors office with nursery . I think my wife and I had just as much fun as our little one. We took that opportunity to introduce our little one into... More

Not much to learn for such a high gate fee, volunteers are not trained and too young. Inside seems disorganized and not neat. Garden is not cared for nor properly maintained with all the gate fees, and sponsors.

We visited science center and were pleasantly surprised how much fun it was! We had young children with us and they loved everything. The dinosaurs, zoo animals, and the penquins were a big hit.. Great for a nice day trip!

Attended granddaughter's birthday party here. I was amazed (not in a good way) at the lack of security. There were children running everywhere and although I realize it is the parent's responsibility to watch their children I think the museum could be better at monitoring exits. On a positive note, there were lots of fun activities and the kids had... More
