My son was about 16 months old a few months back when we visited this museum. It was great. Plenty of space for him to run and play but I could keep an eye on him pretty easily. There were plenty of attractions with fish and snakes to hold his attention even at such a young age. The price was very reasonable and there was plenty of wooded area out back for him to run. It is next door to the Children's Museum, so convenient location. There is a playground outfront, but we did not utilize it.
