Awesome indoor activity for long, hot summer days! I wouldn't call it a museum exactly but there are different experiments you can try. My almost 2 year old and 4 year old loved it here and if it weren't for nap time they could have...More

I took my son here when he was 1 1/2 years old. There weren't as many activities for him to play, and it didn't feel very clean or well maintained. I'm a bit spoiled because the Children's Museum in Austin is so amazing.

Price is not unreasonable. Plenty of fun things to do if you actually engage with the children while there. My two boys love this place. We go here when it's too hot to go to the park.

Kids enjoy the center, but it is pricey! There is a cost for adults too. All there is for the adults is chairs to sit in.

I brought the kids by when it was 100 outside. The kids loved playing various learning games. The staff was great and welcomed us immediately. We look forward to returning to see the new exhibits.
