Alot of the exhibits are hands on for the kids and they love that. A good way to learn a lesson in a fun way. Could not get one of my grandkids off the plane!

We love the Children's Museum! There's something to do for kids ages 6 months to 8-9 years olds! Fridays from 5-8 admission is half price, and teachers get in free anytime with a valid teacher ID. We sometimes take our lunch and spend a good while playing, or just go in for an hour or so on a Friday night!... More

This place is a very pleasant surprise! I would easily say that it rivals more recognized similar places in bigger cities by all measures. There are varied exhibits (doctor's office, farmhouse, post office, and even a TV station!). Also, there are life size real vehicles (police cruiser, fire truck, ambulance, tractor, race car)! The whole place is clean, well kept,... More

We are family members so that we can take our toddler often and hope to continue visiting as he grows since there are so many things to do for different ages of children and they are always bringing in new things. The classes and series are intended for older children (and adults too) so we haven't done those yet, but... More

Lots of fun and interesting things for the little ones. Sometimes it is awfully crowded and it's a bit wild in there...but my grandchildren love to come when they are visiting me.

My company had a free admission day so we thought we would check this out. My 2 year old son absolutely LOVED this place. The staff was very friendly and there was so much to do that he never got bored. He probably would have slept there if we had let him. Just about everything was hands on, so he... More
