“Not Recommended”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Not a pleasant experience. Visited on a rainy afternoon which meant the place was packed. Exhibits were almost universally a disappointment. Staff was terrible -- not helpful or engaging. There are better places to spend your time and money, even on a rainy afternoon.

“Best young children's museum so far”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

With our 8 & 10 year old grandkids, we had a blast. Many children's museums around the country, and many similarities, but this one beats 5 that we've been to. Always an advantage to belong to one in your hometown, but for a kids attraction to those not attracted to the lines at Disney.....this is great. Good for a half-day's entertainment at least, with several craft activites we never got to.

“Too expensive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

Spent around 80 dollars to get in with 3 adults and 2 toodlers. You can easily do the entire museum in less than 4 hours. Exibits are small and while some are interesting, most are small and can get full easily. The attraction in the other side of the road (jungle island) is way better for your money. For begginers it offers a much better playground.

From the looks of it is quite obvious that this attraction is facing some funding issues, even with the high price tag.

“Funny time for children”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

It's OK for children. There are different áreas, like the Firefighter station, wher the kids can wear firemen uniforms.
You can play with your children to be doctor and patient.
The Little market, with small food to play like a real grocery store.
There are many other áreas, it will take at least 2 hours to make children happy.
