The toddlers and preschoolers in our group loved the museum and were thrilled with it. The older school agers in our group got bored and only liked the crafts room and the tech room. We would not recommend it for older kids. However, the younger children wandered happily from room to room playing in the ambulance or buying groceries or... More

We went to the museum with our son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren, ages 2 and 5. We could not get over the various activities available for the children. They range from art projects to fire trucks, ambulance, police motor cycle and all sorts of other scientific and gymnastic areas. They even have an area that is like a mini market where... More

What an awesome experience. Even for an adult! As a grandma I totally enjoyed the thought process that one had to come up with the museum. My granddaughter and great granddaughter have a wonderful time.

My grandchildren, ages 5, 6, 9 & 12 L-O-V--E going here. The new improvements that have been made add to everyone's enjoyment. We used to especially enjoy the Member Theme Nights which had special events and refreshments, which is why I renewed my membership for a couple more years. Seems they have chosen not to schedule many of these any... More
