Kids had fun and we had a nice full morning there. Seems some of the museum is in need of an overhaul.

This place is ideal anytime for young kids. The hands-on exhibits, the free-spirited play and present areas are a treat for the kids and the grown-ups who get to watch.

I was very pleased to know they saved a historical grade school and were very resourceful and turned it into a huge museum for children. My 2 yr old grandson and his mommy took me there after their second trip. I was actually overwhelmed with the 3 story building. There is so much to do there that my grandson an... More

I have a 5 year old, 4 year old, and 8 month old who LOVE THIS PLACE!! Totally worth the money!! My kids could easily spend 5 hours here. The only thing that sucks is the location otherwise we would come more often. Love that they change things up every couple months so there are always be art projects. My... More

We were there when they had free admission night. It was very crowded with lots of parents and kids and strollers due to free night. My kids had great time exploring all three floors of various activities that they offered. Will come back if there's free night offer again.

This is such a great museum! There are so many hands-on things for kids and adults to do - several levels of fun with cool things tucked into side hallways, nooks and crannies. It is very well thought out. The activities are inviting and meaningful. Kids can build with giant foam blocks, walk through a noodle forest, ride small trikes... More
