“Not Sure About It.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

This museum is not what I expected, it seemed a little dull and needed a lift on the activities and centers they had...but nonetheless my child enjoyed it with two friends...

“Stopped in during a road trip south”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

We had great expectations when we approached the museum. Very cute historic building. The lobby was beautiful and the front desk staff was extremely friendly. When we moved into the exhibit space it became more "typical" of what you might expect in a dated children's museum - many pretend play spaces: a construction set, bank, dentist office, farm. Around the back, the room seemed a little sad - worn, blocky, pretend "vehicles". Everything was set up for pretend play, and there were no other types of exhibits. Even with a 2 year old, we were in and out in 20 minutes.

“GREAT PLACE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

This is a great place for kids to go and play out different things. Example, being a fireman, policeman, reporter or to just dress up and play. You can also have birthday parties here.

“Lots if fun with dressing up and role playing at The children's museum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

My two-year-old daughter and I spent a Friday morning exploring what it would be like to be a dentist, a soldier, a grocery shopper, a postman, a weatherman, a judge and much more. She had so much fun dressing up and pretending to play different roles. The entry fee is very affordable, the staff were friendly and did a great job maintaining the stations while 5 kindergarten classes were on a field trip. There os a smaller area for 3 and undr that we "hid" out in while the classes were in the main area. I would suggest calling ahead to be sure there aren't large groups attending as it can be overwhelming to be around too many kids ar once for the younger ones. We will def. be back!
