This is a great place for both the kids and adults. My son has been there 4 times and he is only 18 months old. He loves it.

“One of the Premier Children's Museums and its not just for kids!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

While the focal of this museum is children, there are many exhibits that adults enjoy too! My wife and I do not have kids but still really enjoyed it.

“It's too good for for children.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

Spectacular railroad/model train layout. I drool over the model layout and Lionel exhibit. Wonderful carousel~everyone can ride-kids only on up/down animals. Autistic boy w/us loved it and was animated the whole time we were there. The design lends itself to taking an elevator to the top floor and walking down the ramp. Lots of interactive displays; I particularly enjoy the one where you choose provisions, with a budget, for a trip and and set off on your journey [in a covered wagon] and see if you can complete it with your choices, encountering perils, necessity for trading, hunting, etc. There is something for everyone from toddlers to grandparents-dinosaurs, astronomy, dolls. It's an easy way to learn and will spark interest in most everyone.

“Family Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

A great place for kids of all ages. And husbands who still want to act like a kid. I love bringing home a very very tierd toddler.
