We have visited several of the CMOR locations. The Chesterfield location was great for my one year old as it is very open with lots of space to move. The toddler area for three and under is nice although that part isn't as good as some of the other locations. The bus and fire engine were awesome. She loved the... More

Interactive, huge area, different focused age group areas, clean, well staffed and a cool place to let the kids wonder around, while participating in hands on experiences! Subtle lessons learned in each area while the kids have a blast! Parents/Grandparents can observe and watch from close by everywhere the kids want to go and still participate or just observe, The...

We were looking forward to visiting this museum with our little one and were a little disappointed with the outcome. This place has great potential but it needs a bit of sprucing up. We had intended to spend more time at this place but after being there for only an hour we decided to leave. The grocery store was poorly... More

My 8, 6 and 2 year old loved this place. Fun for all ages and nicely put together. You can pick apples, milk cows, learn the water cycle, play in the trees, explore a cave, and more. A great place to spend 90 minutes and let the kids burn off some energy before piling in the car for the rest... More

My son loved this place and I loved how clean it was and how it was not geared for just older kids. Great place,

We took our grandson while visiting here. He loves the museum! It is for small children, perhaps 7 is the cut off! We enjoyed the pretending and exploring though as adults. We played with the water tornado, and the news studio was fun. It does not take very long to go through. 2 hours with having a snack was plenty... More

This facility is basically a free for all playground. The only staff available on 19 March 2015 was the young lady that handled the front desk. Toys are disorganized and every area seemed to have something broken. The ambulance was broken, the drivers seat held together by electrical tape. The grocery store had 3 cash registers...all broken. The grocery store... More

We were disappointed with our trip. There was plenty of free parking. The museum is more of a free for all play area than a museum. Just not what we were expecting. They did have a nice area for little ones but outside of that area we couldn't really let the baby explore. Kids were running around wild everywhere. The... More

Very pleasant, we was able to take our coats in scarves of and hang them up as soon as we arrived, didn't have to haul the coats around. The toddler area was safe for our 12 mo old to roam freely as we observed, he couldn't run through the whole museum, due to the white picket fence that went well... More
