We have never been to a children's hands on museum before, and my kids really liked it!! I was surprised by all of the things they could do inside. My kids are 4 and 10 and this place had something for them both. They still talk about it!

I have been to several children's museums in different states and this one was probably the least up to date with technology. The more complicated and "higher end" displays were mostly broken. Staff was dispassionate and facility dirty. I will not return. It was my wife and I and kids ranging from 7-11 y/o and most things here did not... More

A lot of the exhibits are quite dirty. And many of them are broken or missing pieces, however, my 2 year old had a good time. The grocery store and restaurant were her favorite things by far.

I've been to many, many children's museums. This one was not that great :( Kind of disappointing, I would say skip it!

After checking the website and planning for weeks, we hiked with our excited two year old several blocks to find that they were closing in 5 minutes for a private event. It would have been nice had they put this on their website.

Great place to bring the kids. We had a great time with a bunch of kids and adults. There are a lot of things to do and the only thing I would say is a negative is that it is so big it can get hard to keep track of everyone :)

This place would be nicer with a little TLC. It is dirty and most of the exhibits are broken or empty. Considering this pricy for what you pay. Still it was a nice place to take our 4 year old for some kid time away from the hustle and bustle of our trip. The staff are young and very lazy... More

My four year old fun had a blast!!! He loved the super market and that the cash machines actually worked and printed a receipt!!! Amazing! The diner was cool too! We were there for story time where a lady read a book about obey and gave out play money as she read! Very cool and interactive. Some of the displays... More
