What fantastic interactive, creative, and well planned museum! Starting with the bubble table downstairs to the restaurant and career field exploration, this place has something for everyone. At $10.00/head for hours of learning and fun, this should be on everyone's to do list!

Great museum! Fun for the little one and good AC which is needed in the summer. Lots of good exhibits including a train track room for the little engineer. Great for a kids day.

ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old
brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and
