“Take you grandchildren here”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

This is an excellent place to take your children / grandchildren on those wet days when school is out. From the "acoustic" guitars to the vacuum pipes and the water feature, wind machine and paper dart launcher this is a great place for the kids to while away many hours.

“Very cute, but small”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Nice museum for young children. My 5 year old got through all the exhibits pretty quickly. The water table was her favorite and she enjoyed it thoroughly. I imagine children that are slightly younger might have enjoyed it a little more (prob from ages 2-4). One thing that was disappointing was the parking. Very limited and you have to pay. Also, during our visit there was a section that was closed. Otherwise, the museum is VERY clean and well kept. Will return with my younger daughter for sure.
