hands on museum.
everything is well though out
free parking
next to Carrabas and sunken garden
in a easy to walk street
parents and kids would love the day there, between shopping next door the museum and restaurant
perfect
a little pricey though
tip: get coupons before in a visitor center, or one of those maps you get for free

It was just OK, not what I was expecting. Would be great for an hour or two with elementary aged children. We had a pre-schooler.

Discovered this on the internet. What a bargain only $10 per person. My 6 year old loved it. Great for younger kids also. Not sure we could have spent a whole day in there but was great for something different to do.

My 8 year old daughter did not like this place. She found it very boring. Staff generally tried to be very friendly except for the receptionist who was VERY RUDE AND DISCRIMINATORY. Don't waste your money because the entrance fee didn't worth the place.

Not a very big place and they were kind enough to let us in with a buy one get one addmision so it was only $10 for me and my son. We wandered in after touring the Sunken Gardens which is at the same complex. My 5 yr old had a great time for about 1 1/2 hours then we went to Cold Stone around the corner for an ice cream treat!
