Took my two granddaughters the other day and they had a fantastic time exploring and touching every square inch of the museum exhibits. Indoor, yep. Outdoor, yep. They loved this place so much they asked to return soon.

My granddaughter had her 4th birthday there. Even though it was a rainy day the children had a wonderful time in and out. The staff was extremely helpful.

We recently took our 3 year old granddaughter here. She loved it! There were so many different interactive areas. The day was cooperative weather wise, so she could enjoy the outdoor area. They had great water tables. Inside she loved the fire engine and kitchen.

This a very fun place for kids. Took grandkids aged 3 and 5, they had a blast. Many innovative things for them to do and try. A bit costly (unless you become a member) but definitely something to experience at least once.

This place provides a wonderful opportunity for children to play and learn. I gave it just 4 stars as the noise level is loud as you might expect from excited children. Just wish there were more sound absorption!
