One of the better children's museums we have visited. So many attractions for children of all ages. Our daughter had a blast here during our four plus hour visit and didn't want to leave. Reasonably priced as well.

My kids are picky but love this place; love the section where you can act like you have a job in various occupations. Clean, well kept and fun.

I think a 13-year-old can have a great time there. So can adults. If you go on a Thursday, there is no admission fee so even if he / she doesn’t Like it, you don’t have to stay long
