Hi Norma, thank you so much for your kind words and taking the time to write a review. We're glad to see you noticed the variety of exhibits we have here. We look forward to having you back for another visit soon!
We, as grandparents, had 4 grandkids from 2 to 12 years old to keep entertained for 4 hours. The activities here made that no issue! The activities are very different than the usual playthings you expect! Very creative and inspirational activities both indoors and out....More
