The Children's Museum was a wonderful place to spend time with my young grandchildren on Mother's Day since it was pouring rain. They greatly enjoyed the the interactive displays, fun activities, and jungle gym. Lots of things to keep little ones entertained. I highly recommend.

The pluses- staff is pleasant, Birthday party space is ample and clean. The minuses- While there are numerous interactive activities for children of all ages all are tired, worn and in some cases missing pieces or parts.
