We are thrilled with the Children's Museum. We loved all the exhibits so much. As parents, we loved the mix of play and learning. My kids were excited with every room. We actually tried to return a few weeks later on Labor Day but they were closed. So make sure you check the website!

My 1.5 and 3 year old love going here but I wish there were a bigger room just for small kids. There is an area just for them but it gets a little boring. They really love the magnet walls though and we spend most of our time there. We have a yearly pass so it proves we like it!... More

Some stations change but the fire truck is one of the stations that's always there. The grocery store is great. There are little carts, registers, and lots... More

My 3 year old loves this place. She like the shopping center and the arts and crafts the most. The one year membership is worth it and pays for itself after a couple visits.

Our daughter had a great time at the Museum. Heck we did too!! There are a ton of educational activities for kids. Very hands on and the staff is helpful and friendly. They also interact with the kids, they don't just sit behind a desk!
