We have some experience with kids museums and this is definitely one of the nicest places we took them. For sure we will come back....

Something you should do if you have young children. Even adults can have some fun with the kids. Make you to disinfect after though as there are many children there.

There is a stage and costumes available for doing a stage production.Some of the areas look like they could use some updating a day sprucing up. It... More

This was our first visit and I can say that we were pleasantly surprised. We brought our grandkids and there were enough activities and exhibits to keep them engaged for hours on end. Especially liked the toddler area for younger visitors. Both kids loved it!

I went for my nephew's birthday. It kept all of the kids entertained. My granddaughter was under a year old and she enjoyed it. Every child seemed to be having a good time. Plenty of interactive things for kids to do.

This is a wonderful place to spend the morning or afternoon with your kiddos. It has so much to do and the kids love it. They get to learn so much from all of the exhibits. They can see what it is like to see a News desk, a restaurant, a doctors office and many more.

While talking to my family about things to do while visiting, my brother-in-law told me about this place. I have a 4 year old and he absolutely loved it! The stations are varied and a lot of things piqued his interest. There are some height restrictions, but also have a few places for crawling babies to explore. I would highly... More

We took our 3 and 5 year old granddaughters here this past weekend. they had a wonderful time playing with the many varied things at the museum. It kept their interest for 2 1/2 hours. Some of the stations are a little worn and could use some updating.
