We are members of the museum. We love it! My children can spend hours there, or just run in for a quick visit. I would definitely recommend it.

We went to the recent Peter Rabbit event. The kids (and adults) both had a great time visiting the museum, making the crafts, face painting and photos with the characters. Look forward to the next time.

Yes! there's so much for little ones to do. They have a specific place for toddlers but the rest of the museum has age appropriate exhibits.
