In short, the museum is for much younger children. My 6 year old comment it was for younger children stating what I found obvious, so did she. I would say the museum is for 4 years or younger. The Boston's Children Museum was much better...More

Visited there with a 2 year old and it was crowded with lots of families with children and all seem to be busy and enjoying themselves. They could have more WC space and diapering spots for the "main group of clients"..

Nothing more than an expensive play centre for very young children (4 or under). Not worth the price of admission. Take your kids to Central Park instead.
