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.

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

This place has been around for years and it REALLY shows. Most of the exhibits are broken or missing stuff, the place looks like it hasn't been cleaned in ages( the bathrooms were AWFUL and the cleaning lady was always on her phone) and I've seen MICE and INSECTS inside the building! Disgusting!! I know the area isn't without it's... More

Great place to take the kids and to beat the heat. Kinda pricey but with the amount of time we stayed inside it wasn't too bad.
