I have to be honest when my sister-in-law suggested taking my kids here while we were in town I rolled my eyes. A kids museum? No thanks... But then you step in and get to hop into the front seat of a big rig or climb onto a full size boat and you realize this place no museum this place... More

Its a very well though out museum for kids with many features the running water with a bridge is so fun for the kids and unusal they can fish and follow down stream. The giant crane I think is a hit fir sure they can operate this from a platform and pick things up from down below what a treat... More

They just finished phase 1 of the expansion. So far they replaced the awesome river and fishing exhibit with a small bucket of water. Yes 1 small bucket. The dentist room replaced with a weird sandy mountain. The toddler area took out the big red house and replaced it with nothing. Just moved the slide. As for the opportunity with... More

This children's museum is small so there aren't as many things to do within as with larger ones but they have packed it full of fun learning experiences for kids. It is great for younger kids but I don't see it being as appealing for the older ones. We have done birthday parties there and gone just for a fun... More

4 stories of fun for the kids and such a great value too! The kids can stay for hours! You can't purchase any food or drinks there so you need to leave it in the car and come back to get it, or take a back pack with you. There is an eating area in the basement. Too bad they... More

A small museum in the Cascade Mall. Lot's of good activities for young kids. I spent a couple hours with my little boy while my wife is doing her shopping. The staff even offered a free parent swap so that we can take turns shopping without the need to purchase another admission.

I scouted some places for my kids to keep busy while on vacation. This was an amazing place, especially for the price. My kids were so interestingly busy and enjoying all the exhibits. The have a semi truck that kids can go into and a real boat they can go aboard and explore. They have a stage and play, a... More

The museum has grown and developed due to incredible leadership, strong determined board of director and an Executive Director with vision and talent. Must See Often.
