“Good but hard with multiple young kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

If you have kids that run, wait awhile to go. It's really great, but not every room will appeal to all your kids so be prepared. Great time though.

PTM is a great place for kids. It gives them good learning experiences while playing. Great for cold weather and rainy days.

“Better than the usual "don"t touch"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

Children learn by touching and often we have to say keep your hands by your side. Hands on is a mother dream.

“Place to bring your young guests!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

My sister and her family came down to visit me for the weekend. I had to quickly figure out how to entertain my nieces, two y/o twins, and my four y/o nephew. I checked TripAdvisor and saw this place. I heard nothing but good things and saw positive reviews...so I thought why not.

Hands down, THE BEST PLACE TO GO when you have kids as guests. They absolutely loved it! Even the adults enjoyed themselves. The place was divided into themes: supermarket, train stations, ER Dept., Ambulance, anything you can think of. My nieces and nephew were fascinated with all the toys and gadgets. Oh and there is also a carousel. Must take the kids on that! I have to say there is definitely enough space for kids to play.

Just an FYI...1) go as early as you can b/c it gets a little crowded 2) if you don't plan on staying more than 2 hrs. ask for a half day pass you'll save more $$$ 3) Bring food b/c it can get a little pricey 4) Wear comfortable clothes: kids and parents

I would definitely go back again. Also watch out for deals on Groupon or Living Social bc they sell them for $9.

ENJOY!!!
