“Fun place, but only for a couple of hours”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

I took my seven-year-old granddaughter to Myseum and she had a great time. It's a great place to go on cold or rainy days when the kids can't play outside, as they can release some energy running around, jumping in the bouncy house, climbing the slide and going down the inflatable slide, plus just running around. There were some interesting exhibits that my granddaughter enjoyed learning from and some things that I enjoyed doing with her. It's more expensive for the kids (less for adults) than The Magic House, but it is less overwhelming. We got there around 12:30 on a Saturday and there wasn't too big a crowd, but it soon got pretty crowded....and loud. We only spent about two hours there. I do recommend it, though. We both had fun!

“Nice Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2014 via mobile

We recently visit Myseum and was pleasantly surprised. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would describe this place as a mini science center infused with a family fun center. It features science "projects", a bounce house, a cool radar gun slide, inflatable alien ship, Dino dig (which needs new shovels and rakes), nice toddler area and other various play areas/exhibits. Be aware that adults are not free. They are $5 less than kids and each adult is expected to pay. Overall though, we give this place the "thumbs up" and plan to visit again.

“Fun time, but not an all-day place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014

Kids had fun, but not as much to do for a 5 and 3 year old as we were expecting. Dino bones, vet, bounce house, slide, shadow wall....pretty much all our kids were into. We were hoping to be there longer, especially for the $40 it cost for our family.

“Found A Place to go With All of The Kids!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

First I have to say that we have kids ranging in age from 6 to 1. Normally any time we take our oldest son somewhere (like skating or bowling) we always have to keep running after the little ones to keep them from messing with things or getting hurt. Well this wasn't the case with Myseum. We finally found a place were the little ones as well as the big could go have fun and cut loose.
They have a dedicated play area for children 2 and under, but they also can enjoy the other attractions with a little help from parents. The toddler area has a bounce house, toys for boys and girls and a scaled down magnetic wall were you can construct things. The museum isn't huge, but it is big enough with the right amount of attractions for hours of fun for all of the kids. One of the best things is that they allow you to bring in outside food, so your not forced to buy what they sale if you don't want to. You can also get a same day pass for reentry it you have to leave but want to come back (same day).
Overall a great place to go for families with young children. Although I wouldn't necessarily recommend it for parents with only preteens and older.

Thank you for the great review, we really appreciate the feedback. We plan to continue to add exhibits that the whole family can enjoy (even the adults).

Thanks again.

“Field Trip place?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

My pre-schooler loved it for about an hour and a half. Then her interest faded fast. There were only a few things she wanted to do for any length of time because a lot of the exhibits were not adapted for her age. She liked the play things. I think it probably has a lot more to offer if children are there on a guided field trip for Science. I can see where it could have teachable possibilities.
