I have two kids, 8 and 5, and they both had fun! It has plenty of things to keep kids, young and old, interested. The outdoor play area was so nice!

I have been to a few children's museum throughout the years and this is by far my favorite. It seemed to make the kid in all the adults want to play as well. It is well thought out and exceeds on the execution. I didn't see one unhappy face there. My children both loved it since there was a wide... More

Went to visit the museum after reading great reviews with our 4 year old. He absolutely loved it. The parking lot was full at about 1pm on a party cloudy Sunday, but we waited for about 5 minutes and were able to get a spot. Free parking. The area surrounding the museum seems to be industrial as many building looked... More

You could come and stay forever. The water room alone can occupy many children for hours. In the good weather there is a great creative outdoor play area.

My 18 month old daughter had a great time here. She particularly enjoyed the water room. She loved the fountains, the whirl pools and the fog. The museum is small but there's a lot to do for young kids. My only gripe is that they don't have a changing station in each bathroom. There are 6 bathrooms but only 2... More

Visited on a snowy day so my kids could run around. Its not very large, but there are a lot of hands on activities for the kids that are done very nice. The building is clean, well lit, and colorful. One of the stations broke while we were there and the staff were very quick to fix it. The price... More

My 4 year old had a lot of fun here, and didn't want to leave! The price was reasonable. The place isn't huge, but they section it off nicely. The play areas seemed clean enough, considering the amount of people the day we went. The bathroom was adequate. I saw staff actively cleaning the play areas and keeping things under... More

We visited on a Sunday when it was Seuss day, and lots of birthday parties. The place was crowded, but not crazy. Our grandkids loved the water station and the boat they could climb on. We were worn out after 2 hours, but had a ton of fun. We will visit again.

Great to have your kids run around not having to worry what happens next. A cool place to hang around, enjoy your parenthood and know you actively contribute to the well-being of your beloved. I miss the place
