“A good way to burn off some energy before a long drive”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

We had 5 hours of driving ahead of us and wanted to give the kids a chance to burn off some energy. This while pricey at 27$ for a fam of 4 (KIDS UNDER 12 MO FREE) seemed to fit the bill.

Basicly this is not a museum at all but a play center with about 16 themed play areas including:
Construction zone
Build your own roller coaster (favorite with our brood)
Water tables broken during our visit
Train town
Grocery store
Music and dance
Theater dress up
Toddler town
Space ship
Dino dig
Post office/bank
Doctors office

I felt a little ripped off having to pay admission for 2 adults when there are no activities for adults other than supervision, maybe that's the idea. A few other exhibits were damaged or broken during our visit but most were operational. My wife said that she'd go back but probably not more than once a year at current pricing.
