It hosts a very good science summer camp last year. My 6 years old loves it! For the museum, they could update the the exhibits, equipment and programs more often. It is always good to drop by the museum after picking up books from the city library!

We take our granddaughter regularly. We started taking her when she was still in a stroller and not ready to interact that much with the exhibits. But as she is getting older she seems to find new areas that draw her attention. Some of her favorites are the acting stage, the grocery store, the post office, and definitely the plane... More

This place is huge...there are lots of different areas to explore and it is a fun place for kids probably from ages 3 to about 8/maybe9. It wasn't the cleanest place, unorganized and actually pretty hard to enjoy the time with your child because way too busy. The prices are really, in my opinion too high for the experience however,...

You can easily spent 4 hours in this place.. I know because we did ! !! I couldn't even get the 10 and 6 year olds to leave for lunch and return after words.... Being able to climb all over the life size fire truck, race car, ambulance, police car, airplane and 18 wheeler cab are just the beginning of... More

I took my great granddaughter to the museum when she was about eight. Lots of children we saw seemed to really be having fun, but I felt most of the activities were too young for us.

We have visited here several times and had a blast each and every time. There is so much to see and do. Volvo Trucks donated a truck for kids to climb in and play. There is also a police car, a race car and a firetruck. Pretty awesome! It's a big place so even when there is a lot of... More

Our children love coming here. We save it for rainy and snowy days, cold days because there is so much to do inside. We stayed for 3 hours and probably could have stayed for more. The hands on exhibits are great for the kids.

We took 3 grandkids here for a day. For children under 12, there is much here to do. The museum is very large inside, and offers numerous opportunities for children to "make up" play in stores, medical centers, trucks, outdoors. Simply wonderful to allow children to construct their own world in imaginative ways.

Lots of hands-on activities for young children - drama, building, shopping, cooking, train, digging for dinosaur bones, fire engine, airplane. Great place for young children!!
