At first, was a little bit concerned with the steep $13/person (adult and child) admission price and the museum, all on one floor, didn't seem very large. However, once we got going, we realized the space was subdivided into many interesting exhibits for the kids....More

We took our two grandchildren (ages 10 and 5) here for some child-worthy R & R. The order one acted as a tour guide, helping the 5 year old navigate the various stations and experiences. A great time was had by all.

We had a blast here with my 21 month old - he absolutely loved the water table, the train exhibit and the mock nursery. Reasonably priced, we will be looking to go again if we’re back in the area

When in town I’ve visited over the winter and recently this month again with friends and family. It’s so much fun for the kids to run around and explore all of the different rooms and areas. I love that it is all on one level.

My child had enjoyed himself. I was better when he was smaller and easier to follow. Just choose off peak times
