Very diverse amount of activities in this underground village especially for little ones. Live animals, dress up, loads of books and toys, fossball, keyboard, and additional paid activities to decorate cupcakes/cookies/sundae, or use nail polish and other things with soaps etc. Well organized and friendly...More

Visited this weekend with a 3 year old and grandparents. It cost about $45 for 5 people which included more adults than children. We only did one of the extras which was painting nails which my toddler loved and it was the best part for...More

Im always looking for places to take my Grandson and I stumbled upon a Groupon on LivingSocial deal and was pleasantly surprised at this hidden gem located down the steps in the basement of a building. Parking isn't fun but you can park across the...More

It kills me that my daughter (3.5) loves this place so much. It's no surprise that she does - it's a messy free-for-all with lots of stuff to get into. But I agree with many other commentators about the place being a bit run down,...More

The stations (rooms) are not regularly put back in order, so elements of the activity get strewn around into other rooms. There was no staff around to help handle animals, provide play dough, or dispense treats. Seemed to just be someone with the pay for...More

My son and I found the Playseum underwhelming and disappointing. It's a cute concept, but very poorly executed. Here is why it didn't work for us: 1) The space is poorly maintained. The carpet is stained, the walls desperately need a new coat of paint...More
