This is not a museum for adults or older kids. 7/8 and under I would say. My 3 & 5 year old LOVE to go and ask to go even after we have been what feels like 100 times. I does get busy on rainy days but never feels over booked.

We took our grandkids (ages 5 and 6) and they loved it! They were on the move from the time we got there until closing time (5:00 p.m.) It is very hands-on. There's a fire truck they could climb in. A grocery store where they can "shop", even a cash register and little shopping carts. There's a water works area... More

While it seems expensive at $10 per head, I literally think you could keep a child entertained for an entire day. Every inch is hands on from picking apples on the farm to serving meals in the cafe. There is also a large art area where kids can create to their hearts content and a stage with costumes where they... More

We took our 2 year old, and she had a very good time. It was extremely busy, and a little overwhelming for all of us. I would probably recommend going on a weekday if you have a shy kid or if you mind loud noise. Very stimulating activities.

This place is great! There is so much for children to do here. I was really blown away by everything that this place offers. There is a water table with lots of activities, super market for the kids to play in, art area, stage with costumes, submarine and underwater room and much more. If in the area with young children...

This a great place for a rainy day with your kids. Its a little pricey. If you live close, consider the yearly pass. My kids love the water table area, the "restaurant" play area and the aquarium play area. On weekends it can be very crowded. We have had good luck with going early, right when they open.

Lots of pretend play. Small section for under fives. You could easily spend all day here with your children.

Lots to do here for small children. Older kids not so much.4 year olds may be the cut off age. School trips here are dangerous to the little ones here because they run around without regard to little ones. Not sure why they bring them here.

The kids loved this place. It was pretty crowded before lunch time and that made it a little hard to keep track of the kids, but after lunch it cleared out and was very pleasant. Good activities, employees were nice and helpful, and the kids stayed entertained.
