Great little gem...

This was a great museum. They have lots hands on exhibits. Great place to get away from the heat. We had a 4 year old with us that had a blast.

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!

This is a great museum to take your children too. It is very kid friendly and has lots of interesting facts that children love to learn and should know.

This is such a fun place. Even for adults. I feel adults can enjoy this as much as the children they are with. There are so many interesting items from the old to the new. Lots of history and things that children will never get to experience in their lifetime. Go, you will enjoy.

We spent 20 minutes in the outside courtyard playing with the outdoor congas, xylophones, and chimes before setting foot in the front door! I knew we had a winner when I put my granddaughter down in the museum foyer and she first started to the left, stopped and then started right, stopped and began to toddle to the Electri-City section...

The museum was great. We went the afternoon of July 4th, so it was almost empty. There was a wide variety of activities for many ages. We asked if they had any discounts, they said they had a military discount, but they were also running a special that day for one free child with purchase of adult ticket. Moral of... More
