“Lovely Children's Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

We stumbled upon this place by accident. Our 1.5 and 4 year-olds were both tickled by all of the cool exhibits and activities.

There are arts & crafts, cool pretend areas, bunny rabbits, and building centers. This is a fun place to spend the day.

The place is very clean and the staff is friendly. We highly recommend this place!

“Great for an active child”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

As grandparents we brought our 3 yr. old granddaughter who loved it. So much to keep her busy and it all kept her attention. It seems there is enough for all ages. It is two stories so you do get a workout, especially with a fast mover. Little café was a nice break. It is a well thought out place and there is only street parking as far as I could tell.

“An Enjoyable Afternoon for Three Generations”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013

My husband and I recently visited this small, child-friendly museum with our son, daughter-in-law and 13 month old granddaughter. At first, the museum seemed very loud as we entered, but we became accustomed to the noise pretty quickly. There were plenty of interactive activities for all three generations to enjoy. I would say that this museum is best suited for toddlers through 7 or 8 year olds and their families. I did not particularly care for the "lobby" of the museum as you were faced with an open snack bar area and a small gift shop as soon as you walked through the front door. I think that this could cause an issue for some children and parents before they even get to the attractions. I also felt that the admission price for a 13 month old should not have been the same as that for the rest of us. That being said, the $7.00 pp cost was a bargain.

Perfect rainy day place. Tons of stuff for the kids to see and do. Brought our 2 & 3 year old kids. They went nuts for 3 hours.

“Great for a Mommy & Me day!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

Brought my three-year-old son here on a free museum pass. Spent a nice three hours or so and managed to hit all of the attractions. Small enough to do in a few hours but large enough to keep him interested. Would return.
