“Lots of fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

We spend the entire afternoon here with kids ages 17 months, 5 and 10 and we all had a great time! Be sure to also visit the adjacent Scovill Zoo and playground with carousel. A really fun day for the family!

“Great place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

My 4 and 6 year old loved it. Very hands on, not crowded. Very enjoyable. A lot of hands on activities to keep young ones entertained.

“Pre-schoolers love this place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

Before our grandchildren were in elem. school, my husband and I had a Grandparent membership. We could take all of the grandkids as often as we'd like and as many as we wanted at one time. This is a great deal and the kids always loved it. I am sad now that they are all 'too old' (jr. and sr. high) to go. You won't be disappointed and you can go to the zoo , have a picnic, or play at the playground nearby.

“Great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

The museum is a great option for children, where they can participate in the exhibits, touching things and playing. It is located near the zoo.
