This little gem has a LOT for kids to do. All of it is interactive; all of them hold some degree of hands-on fun for almost any age. As others have commented, it's decidedly low-tech...and that is a good thing in my book! It is...More

While this is probably a decent place for local inhabitants to take kids under 6 for some sensory play indoors, it is not worth the time and trouble for an out of town tourist. I've been to two other much more impressive children's museums in...More
