We just moved to the area and I took my 9 and 11 year olds here. I suspected they would be a bit old for this place and I was right. It is geared at LITTLE kids. My kids still managed to enjoy some aspects of it though. They liked the bubble room and the circles room most where there... More

I only wish we had gotten there earlier and stayed longer. This museum can keep kids busy and happy for hours! You name it, they have it - bubble play, water area, corn doll making, supermarket/restaurant play area, firetruck, ambulance, Wells Fargo carriage, castle, arts area, face painting. Basically plan to be there for hours, and let your kids go... More

Spent a pleasant day here. 6 year old was engaged for about 3 hours. We've been to children's museums all over so 3 hours did it for us but probably could spend even more time.

I took my grandson for a date and I must say I had as much fun as he and the other children. Very unique place. Great news is I have 5 more grands so off we go. Loved the ginormous rocking chair 🙌🙌🙌

The little kids have so much to see and do! Very interesting hands on displays. It can get alittle crowded on weekends, prefer weekdays.

We took our granddaughter when she was a toddler and she loved it. Her favorite activity was the water works splash zone. Be prepared because they will get wet. They have a nice cafe with kid friendly food choices.

I went with my 3.5 years old gal and she totally enjoyed it. The exhibits are interactive, educational and well-designed. And children can try by themselves, so it was very engaging. The water play area is very interesting and fun. We spent like 4-5 hours there. I think this is a hidden gem.

Took our very active 4-yr old grandson to this museum because it was too hot to play outside. We were worried that he may be too young to appreciate the museum, get bored, and misbehave. But he so enjoyed the experience that we stayed much longer than we anticipated. He is indeed too young to appreciate some of the displays,... More
