We stopped here to get the wiggles out on a long car trip. Great place!! Staff was awesome and our kids age 6 and 2 loved it! We are members at another museum and loved that this was part of the reciprocal network.

There were a lot of fun things for my seven year old to play with. She was the only child there when we visited. The attendant was very hands off, which was fine with us. We really enjoyed a lot of the activities they had set up. There was a ton of moon sand on a light table and a... More

I like how organized it is but yet the children have a lot of choices in things they want to do. The Director Patricia Croft, is always searching for exciting new ideas for programs to occupy their mind and spirit
