Pretty outdated and with broken toys, that could be easily tossed or replaced/fixed, rather than just sitting there. Same for the outdoor area: it looks old and desperately needs a good remake. Throughout the museum, there are things that can't be touched or aren't accessible...More

Took our grandchild there (age 2) and she loved it. We were surprised how much they had to do for that age. Definitely a great way to spend some quality time with your kids.
