“Please Make Sure You Please Touch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Great place to visit with active kids. Was surprised how much there is to do in this place. Tons of activities and can keep them entertained for hours. Much of the activities are also educational which is great.
They even have an Alice in wonderland area which is very creative!

Highly recommend spending some time here! Its a little pricey but well worth it for the experience

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

The museum is bigger than I expected and really really nice for the kids. I recommend it. There is a bathroom on every corner which is really important.

“My niece and nephew LOVED it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

It is very informative and totally a "hands on" experience for kids. My niece was about 11 and my nephew 6 and they could have stayed there for days. Everything is interactive from donning a waterproof apron and moving little boats up and down a "river" to learn how locks work to "shopping" and filling your cart at the grocery. A must see for kids 10 and under!

“INCREDIBLE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Looking for a day to spend with your kids without boring them? This is the place. HUGE, filled with wonderful interactive exhibits guaranteed to energize your kids till they collapse. Maybe you'll get a nap out of the trip yourself. My 4 year old begged us to go back for 3 days! And wants to go back, even a month later.
