I visited this museum with a 2, 4, and 5 year old and thought I would spend a couple hours here with them doing some hands on learning and exhibit interaction. As soon as you walk in, you're in the midst of the gift shop which is great with little ones wanted to grab everything in sight. The employee was in the back and when we finally got her attention, she counted us and told us the price. Didn't greet us, or stick around to answer questions.
Our tour started, and lasted 30 minutes, with our kids spending 10 minutes playing on the putting green and fake news desk a piece. Ten more minutes searching for other stuff to do, and then we found ourselves right back in the front of the museum. My daughter asked "is that it?" before we could even take our second lap to make sure we didn't miss and hidden rooms or exhibits. The kids had already lost interest in everything in this place because the exhibits look good enough from afar but the electronics don't function properly and the small grocery store seemed to look like a Walmart for 5 year olds because it's where every kid in there gravitated.
For my own curiosity, I walked a lap around the pathway of the museum at a slow pace behind small children and timed it at taken exactly 26 seconds to leave from the front lobby and return there. This should be a free place, and there should be more effort placed into assuring children would enjoy themselves here.
I will not be returning, nor will I recommend this to any friends or family.
