If you are looking for a good 2-3 hours with little kids, this is the place. They will have a blast and you will too.

“Great for a rainy day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

Numerous of permanent interactive displays and a temporary interactive displays, great for kids from 2 to 7ish. I just wish that parent would not let their kids run over the little kids. There is a separate room for kids under 3, but not really monitored so often older kids are running around in there too.

“Nice museum for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

This museum is great for kids, which is what it is geared to. If you come in wintertime, the "snow land" exhibit is popular and fun. It features fake snowflakes, a carpet hockey rink, and more.
