We have been going to the museum for several years and the past couple of trips have been less than stellar. Filthy interior, exhibits not working, no customer service and the displays are really showing their age. Place could use a good clean-up and renovation. I would not make this a priority on my "must see" list if you are... More

We went with our 9yo on Memorial Day. We would have preferred to be outside but mother nature had other plans. According to the Museum's site my son is on the older side of the target age. He still enjoyed it. Unlike other museums's geared toward children, I thought it was a snooze fest. At least I was able to... More

Came here to kill some time waiting on family to get into town. My four year old son LOVED this place. We have nothing like this in our small town so he thought it was awesome! They have three floors of activities to do. He loved the supermarket part. I think I loved it too! Great learning and hands on... More

My son really enjoyed this museum! He enjoyed the Power Ball Hall and Science City the most. The downstairs area with the grocery store and the blue foam blocks was also a lot fun. It is well worth the price of admission.

My toddler absolutely loved the Museum! It was a great place for him to run around and explore. Pricing is very reasonable for what they have.

We loved coming here with our four year old. She had so much fun in the grocery store where you could actually ring up groceries by scanning the bar code! Also the play ball pulley system was interesting. .. It kept her busy! We also liked the little airplane staged, the bank system, the bulldozer, and the tree house stairs.... More

I visited with my 5 yr old and 8 yr old and there was so much untapped potential here. For instance, the ball fun area in the front on the main floor was cool except there were far too few balls. Just the bare minimum of balls to make it work. In the "make a car to race" area there... More

So, we had planned to go to Sea World, but didn't want to fight the rain, so we ended up here. Oh my! Our 4 year old had lots of fun, I was out of my mind bored. It took us about 3 hours to go through all 3 floors. The college kids that work there are mostly just there... More

Although we live here, I was pleasantly shocked at how great this place was for our kids! We thoroughly enjoyed our time, and was impressed by all areas. The kids are into tractors, and they had an actual bobcat that they got to "drive", power an elevator with their own strength, the HEB grocery store, the ball maze, and more.

As far as Children's Museums go, this one was rather basic. My 6 year old and 3 year old got bored rather quickly with each part. The best part was the ball drop and the market. These were the only areas they stayed in for more than 5 minutes. I was glad I had purchased a Groupon for it; because... More
