Our kids love the place. We've been here many times, kids always find something new to do. There's areas they can independently play, areas to make friends and group play, areas for art, areas for science exploration, even an indoor playset to climb and slide. Only a few things I wish they changed: - Open more hours - Offer wifi... More

Went on a rainy Mother's Day weekend, lots of great art, science, lego, magna tiles, train table, airplane, kitchen, things indoor for the kids to really immerse themselves into. We weren't able to explore the outdoor garden, etc due to weather. Great price, great learning opportunities, a lot jammed into a relatively small "building".

A great place for the little ones to explore and let their creative juices flow! A nice change of pace on the way out of Tahoe.

Admission is $8 for everyone, which I felt was a bit pricey. It is small my daughter(age 4) was done after 2 hrs, we didn't do outdoor things due to rain. I felt it was a bit squished, seemed to clear out around 12:00 though. Only open from 10-1:30 so plan accordingly. You can take lunches in.

Checked for address on their website as we drove into Truckee. Not open after 1:30 in summer, according to the site. We have 2 disappointed preschoolers.

Hard to find because of all the construction in the area. The kids loved playing and climbing. Not too big. Hour and a half was plenty of time inside. Never made it outside but did not see to much out there.

The place is small, but packed with fun for the kids. We had a membership and got our money's worth. Hoping to get another membership soon.

Located near the high school this kids "museum" has lots of fun hands on things for young children. Has train table, magnets, large blocks. A wonderful rainy day activity.

Our grandchildren enjoyed all the many hands on exhibits from the large train track to the plane and the outside exploration. They were able to put on rain boots and splash in small creeks. Great fun.

This place has a ton of fun things for such a small operation. My son loves the indoor play set as well as the real airplane to check out. However, the best part is the outdoor items such as play pond, sand box and musical items built from metal which all are way less used than the indoor items. If... More
