“Fun”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

We brought our niece to the museum and it was a lot of fun, The only downside is that it's more of a giant indoor playground than a museum. She had a blast and the big kid inside of me did too. If you have kids and bring them here just know that they will ware themselves out in less than one hour.

“Kid Fun!”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

Our grandkids love to play here on super hot or rainy days. They especially enjoy the bubble area, watching the bees, and working the "shops."

“Was wonderful ”
Reviewed July 30, 2014 via mobile

We came here with our family of children 4-11, at first we where worried if there will be activities for the older kids. In the end there was so much to do, we did not even get to see the whole place.

The front desk staff where very friendly and welcoming. The other staff on the floor, some where awesome, others not available to answer questions. But overall most where great. Just could use more staff to help kids out.

Will come back here again.

“Closed on Mondays. ”

Awkward to be closed on Mondays. Place looked like a lot of fun, hoping to revisit on our way back home to Indiana.

“Great place for kids!!”

I must admit that as an adult, I enjoy this museum as much as my son. Plenty of things to do for everyone. Very helpful staff.
