Worst place I've ever been too! They have a rude teenager at the door no management on duty. Kids were left unsupervised with no adults because of the outrageous $6 per person fee! I don't mind paying for my children but to expect a full fee per parent and an 18 yr old sibling is a bit much. We drove 45 mins to spend a couple of hours with our 5 year old and had to leave with him in tears. It could have been an easy fix but like I mentioned before a rude teenager on duty and no management. Don't waste your time this is not a fun or professional environment.

We spent hours at hit small but activity packed "museum". It is not so much a museum as a learning center for young children who get to shop, climb, slide, touch sea creatures, sit in skid-steer's, giant bird nests, huge chairs, crawl through a lighthouse, push buttons, hear animal sounds and much more. Our grandchildren ages 3 and 1 absolutely loved this place and on a rainy day it was great fun.

My daughter and I had a great time at the Museum today. An excellent place for young children, and a great place to learn. It's not a very big space, but my understanding is that they want to grow it. Non the less they have a lot of displays that are all hands on for the kids. Thanks for having us!

So this is the second or third time we have been here with our now 4 year old girls. This place is not large, but they somehow remained entertained for almost 2.5 hours! We used our reciprocal museum membership which gave us 50% off admission. That made this a bargain! New exhibit of topographical sand map was really cool. Nice craft area for stickers, painting, stamps. Would suggest they add a sink in that area for cleanup. Verdict: great way to fill a chunk of afternoon in the winter. I am sure we will be back!

I took my son here who was 12 at the time, even though this place is meant for children much younger my son presents himself much younger than he is, he did enjoy almost every aspect of the museum from the big bulldozer to the art station I would highly recommend this place to anyone with kids! We enjoyed ourselves!
