This was a great, educational, fun way to spend a rainy afternoon. Our 5 year old granddaughter had a fabulous time. It also brought out the kids in us! We had as much fun as our granddaughter!

My 12 yo daughter and grandmother went here and had fun learning at each of the different stations. $3 per person to get in time is great for inexpensive fun and well worth doing again.

My three children (then 6, 4, 2) enjoy going here and playing with the toys and doing the activities. They definitely select toys that encourage children to use their minds and hands to manipulate the toys and learn while they do so. There were several...More
