I brought my two grandchildren there for a birthday, (ages 3,4) and although the museum certainly has potential, it suffered from disorganization & inadequate staffing and maintenance. Staff didn't appear to be well-trained and knowledgeable and were ill prepared for the most part to guide kids through the exhibits. The science experiments had no instruction/leadership and the kids were basically... More

In fact we all enjoyed it so much that we bought our son's family a 1-year membership so they can take the kids back a lot. There's a nice little space for sitting down and having a cool drink or...

Kidspace is a great place to take the kids for a fun and educational day trip. The kids seminars are fun, the climbing areas keep them all occupied and the staff is VERY helpful.

We took our 2 year old for the first time. She loved the "digging for fossils" area, of course the kiddie zone outside, the music instruments outdoors, etc. Overall, it was very informational but I think I will take her again when she's a bit older. The bathrooms should be cleaned more often though. There's a lot to learn! Would... More

I took my two year old grandson and we had a blast! We climbed, did water activities, rode trikes, did smusic time and still didn't experience the entire facility in three hours. So many kids cried because they just didn't want to leave. We even saw a TV star there with her child!

I took my 2.5 year old granddaughter. She had so much fun, we both did. She enjoyed the outdoor playground the best. The large foam blocks, and just exploring. Inside, there is an area with live bees and their honeycomb. She did not want to leave

Visiting from Orlando and decided to chill out on a Sunday afternoon and went to Kidspace. Had a blast and so many variety of activities for the lil ones. Well worth it for the kiddies and adults. The lil river and waterfall can be a bit slippery so keep an eye on your kids and make sure they mind the... More

Cool outdoor space for kids. Also have indoor exhibits. all very hands on. Cafe has good food that is reasonably priced. Would certainly get a membership if we lived nearby as our kids have already asked to go back!
