We went with a 3year old and a 6 year old, it was 3 dollars a person to get in, which is cheap, it still wasn't worth it. There was a story time that the kids sat through and got cookies afterwords. The bottom floor has a few little exhibits, a house, a boat, a market, and a fort, there are some fake foods and a few fake wooden tools, as well as some wooden guns to play with. The kiddie corral for kids under 3 made me laugh out loud, it was an area about 3 feet wide by 5 feet long with a foot high picket fence around it and some Melissa and Doug animal puzzles strewn around. There is an elevator to the second floor, which is where you are greeted by a sign saying not to make noise, which would be understandable for maybe an art museum, but not a kids museum. I also liked the arrows pointing the way to different exhibits, the one that said Indians, had a computer printed sign taped over it saying "native Americans" Classy. Another favorite was an old map that they had helpfully outlined areas with colored tape to show where the "blacks" had lived in the days of yore. The top floor is not kid friendly and has little of interest to children. It seems like they put clunky handmade wooden toys in each room of a museum that was once geared towards adults. The outcome was that my wife, myself and in-laws were nonplussed, my children managed to have fun, just like kids will.
