Lots of different "exhibits", very reasonably priced. Theyhave a model grocery store that was a HUGE hit! Parking can be difficult.

“Good for Preschoolers”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Admittedly, I haven't been in a couple years, but at that time, it was DEFINITELY geared toward preschoolers. If that's what you are looking for, this is the place. I would think older children might be bored.

“Great for kids, but pricey.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

I think that adults should get in free with child's admission. There's not really that much for adults to do. Some of the exhibits are really outdated as well. My nephews liked it though.

“My kids always loved it!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Keep in mind I haven't been to many museums but my kids loved this one. They loved the grocery store and the news center. The light/shadow room was fun as well. I love the ark.
