We love to take our grandchildren here because they have a fantastic time. Lots of things to DO... hands on experience from dressing as a firefighter and climbing aboard the fire truck to hammering together and sawing wood blocks

Whether you are climbing, making bubbles or learning how to cook, there is never a dull moment here. I have been taking my kids here for years and there is always something new to experience or explore. Membership options are very reasonable as well.

This children's museum offers fun activities for kids of all ages. With a large range of hands-on activities there should be something to interest your little-to-medium one, Many of the more in-depth scientific principles may be lost on the smaller children, but with plenty of...More
