This place is great for young and old. I took my grand daughter here on Saturday and the whole family had a load of fun. We ended up buying a year membership and it will be used again and again. We stayed for 4 hours and did not see everything. So many areas to explore. My grand daughter was begging... More

We went yesterday with a one and three year old and they both had a blast. There is even a small kid area for the little ones. So much to do and both said they loved it. Worth every penny for a Saturday afternoon adventure!

Don't take the kids unless you want to stay for hours! The upside is that you will have active, happy children/grandchildren. Smiles all day.

WE were there with my 6 and 10 years old. There were many things to do and they learned a lot while they played. The activities are different, the place is in great condition and staff are kind. I definitely recommend it!

Took my grandson there during Christmas break. Great place for cold weather. Lots of hands on activities for all ages. I am a teacher so I got in free. Be sure and get a locker as carrying your coat around gets heavy. Wish there were more places (benches) for adults to sit on. Didn't like having to pay $5 to... More

This is one of the very best children's museums we've seen ... lots of hands-on activities that are different than I've seen in other places, good explanations for scientific displays, fun crafts and very helpful staff. The lockers are very accessible and large. The entire place is clean. I do have one complaint, however, about the Lego room setup ...... More

We were there for 5 hours and didn't even make it to 2 of the areas. I think we could have spent 5 more hours there. Lol. Plenty for children and adults of all ages.
