Children really like this Museum. It is very interactive. They have a snack bar and a gift shop. Especially good on rainy days.

2 boys (age 4&5) had a great time! Husband and I were thinking that it would wear out the kids but it was exhausting following them! They loved it all, very happy that Thomas the Train was there too! Definitely recommend!
