Fun for the whole family

We take our kids here often, even the 9 year old still enjoys going. They have a lot to offer and it's both fun and educational.

This is one of the few children's museums which is maintained very well and is very clean. Lots of fun for children of all ages and extremely safe!

Such an interactive place for kids. I knew my five year old would have fun but I was worried that my twelve year old would be bored. Not the case! The giant scrabble board was a favorite. Music areas and dance areas kept them playing together and having a good time. The water area was fun with fishing and boat... More

The staff at the Children's Museum is enthusiastic about their jobs and their museum. It is easy to maneuver and so much to do for children of all ages. Excellent way to spend a long morning or afternoon. The Science Museum is very good too, but needs a lot more parent interaction and interest from the little ones.

We have a membership and love going on days we can't play outside. In the summer they have a small splash area outside.

This place has something for everyone. We all loved it! The giant scrabble board was very cool. Both of my children loved playing in the caves and the music area. This is a definite 5 star place!

Several parents had not been to the museum yet and they were all very impressed at the facilities. I do recommend bringing your own cake. The one we ordered from the museum was still a bit... More

Our Grandchildren really enjoy going there. They could spend the day and have spent a few hours visit and playing there. A great place for children. They are 12, 9 and 5 years of age. A great experience there.
