We spent about three hours here with our 1.5 and 3.5 year old boys along with a couple of our adult friends we were visiting from out of town. There isn't a whole lot to do in Tuscaloosa, so we thought we'd check it out. It was definitely better than I was expecting. There were many different centers for the kids to try out including a space center, an old pharmacy and soda bar, a boat, a native american area, a hospital, a fishing boat, and more. It was perfect for the 3.5 year old but there was still plenty to entertain the 1.5 year old. I'm sure if we lived here, we would be members. Yes, it's primarily a creative, indoor playground, but there's certainly plenty of learning to do if you pay attention with your children. It's comparable to other children's museums we've been to in that sense.
Yes, the price is a bit steep. But the museum was clean and well staffed and the exhibits were all in good working area. It's not like they're going to be swamped with visitors given the location, and they need to make money to keep operating! I felt the cost was worth it.
