We were looking for a place to have some fun and Building for Kids was it! Our favorites were operating a crane, water gallery, giant foam building blocks and the balls moving through clear tubes area. Spent about 2 hours here. Would recommend to anyone with young children

This is a huge children’s museum with a lot of great features. Our toddlers had a great time. However it is understaffed. There were only a couple instances where I saw staff putting stuff back or monitoring things at all. My sister and I took it upon ourselves to tidy up areas

This is an awesome place to take younger children to learn and burn off some of that energy on a rainy day.

This is a great place for kids & one of the largest children’s museums that we've been to (two floors of fun). They have a nice area for toddlers, life size fire truck & so much more.

The art area is fantastic. Kids can create for hours. A space where kids have options and can spend hours. We will go again. Free if part of ASTC.
