Kids had a lots of fun. Some of the adults were playing too. Lots of things to do. If you go in the morning, there was no wait to play. Kids can't wait to go again.

Took my grandchildren to the Museum and had a wonderful time. But ran out of time. I had no idea how much was there. The place was very well supervised, clean and safe. Highly recommend this for children of all ages. And the parents too!
