Super friendly staff. The lower level of the museum I think is geared toward the older ages with plenty of activities for 'making' things and exploring games and activities like origami and juggling. Our 2 year old had no interest in any of that but...More

My preschooler enjoyed playing here all morning. My toddler enjoyed testing his limits jumping off everything. A fun place to be when the weather is not good.

We stopped by the children’s museum and it only took about an hour for our boys to get bored. It was ok, but there are better ones around. There are some activities, but nothing that keeps the kids interested for very long. Probably wouldn’t go...More

Spent 1.5 hours on a cold Saturday with my 4.5 and 1.5 year olds. They both had a blast climbing around the different play areas. It isn’t huge, but is just right for a morning of active fun. Seems geared towards younger kids though, I...More

Part play, part science. Was great place for kids to explore, hidden in warehouse area. Free admission via reciprocity with our local zoo/science center pass.
