We got there right when they opened and also in the off season, so we practically had the whole place to ourselves (which I hear is very rare). There's a special gated toddler area with comfy chairs for the adults and then a fun ship,...More

A great idea and place for kids. It was nice to take it easy on a rainy day with two little ones. They had a great time playing with the different exhibits and it was a nice break for a few hours. They loved painting,...More

Maybe I'm spoiled from being from an area with amazing childrens museums, but I dont see the fuss about this place. It was a house, with random toys for kids in various rooms. It was in desperate need of a deep clean. Very disappointed that...More

Visited with our 3 grandsons and had the time of our lives! The boys loved the multiple opportunities to make artistic creations as well as all of the interactive play. Will go back again and again!

My kids really enjoyed it here. There is lots of variety of things to do. The car building and arts and crafts area were big hits. I would absolutely recommend a visit for kids 2-7. It was a fun way to spend a few hours.

My husband, almost 3 year old and myself went on a Saturday when rain was expected. There were only 3 families to start so it wasn't crowded at all. A few things show sign that items were well loved but to be expected of a...More

We took our 2 & 5 year old children here and they had a blast. The prices are $7 a person (adults pay too). They have lots of hands on activities. They offer summer camps for kids ages 3-10 & something like parents’ night out....More

This was the greatest place ever!! The weather was cool and rainy so we decided to try out the sandbox. My granddaughter did not want to leave. We stayed over 2 hours and could have stayed longer. They had everything a child could possibly imagine...More
