Great way to spend a few hours where kids can explore at their own pace and learn also. Mine just loved collecting apples on the machine and sending them out to market. Simple but exciting. Staff were especially good and attentive. Suitable for older kids...More

A very active kids experiential museum. Not so big that you lose track of the kids or so crowded they can't get a turn at the various play stations. The kids (5 and 7) had a great time.

We spent a few hours here and there are several things that my child enjoyed. There's an oversize light brite, a windtube where you can see which objects "fly" (paper cup, piece of egg carton, for example), and a large set of mirrors where a...More

Cute museum! Plenty for kids to do. Kept my 6 and 9 year old entertained for 2.5 hours and wasn’t expensive either.

My 6 year old daughter loved this place. Lots to explorer in a small space. My 12 year old son was pretty bored by it. I would say it's geared towards 10 and under.

Heard about this place from a guy at Lowes while camping in the area. My 5 yr old loved it. Had some interesting exhibits and even the parents were joining in.

To be honest I was a bit disappointed that there were not more activities. It took less than an hour to see everything. It was nice, but I thought there would be more things to do.
