A very nice "hands on" type of activity for the kids. My granddaughters had alot of fun. It is fairly cheap and good entertainment for the under 10 crowd

Went with out-of-town family members, including 2 kids, age 2 and 7. It was a back-up plan because one of them is not feeling well to be outdoor. Turned out to be a great day! Very good hand-on exhibitions, such as the water one, making your-own corn husk dolls, and build a bird house....etc. For lunch, we went to nearby San Jose Japan town, also very good.

We liked everything except the PB&J sandwiches. My daughter had a blast playing with the bubbles and in the mini restaurant.
