My kids are 9 and 11. They did not like this place. It is geared for young kids. The location is nice. It is pricey considering its a museum and pretty boring. I dont think we will be back

“Plenty to do”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

We went in the morning, left for lunch and returned for the afternoon with our 5 and 7 year olds. We really enjoyed the wizard of oz display and every thing else available. It was nice getting there 1st thing in the morning as we had the place almost to ourselves for the first hour. The real motorcycle was cool! and they had a drumming for wellness session that was fun for us all. My daughter loved trying out real crutches in the Dr. office and the arts and crafts were great. Well worth the $.

“Fun filled morning”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012 via mobile

We spent about 2 hours exploring the museum. It is geared towards toddlers and kindergarten aged kids. We enjoyed playing in the hospital and dentist area. The veterinarian section had great stuffed animals and an x-ray machine but no other supplies to take care of the animals. The music area was fun to dance in and sing on the microphones. The traveling wizard of Oz exhibit was a lot of fun; they did a great job with the layout and design (we have enjoyed this at Strong Museum of play). If there was more food choices we might have stayed longer.
