“Great indoor activity”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

Can be pricey if u have a lot of kids. Try to find deals. Parking along the streets is best but very limited.

“Great adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

We took some friends children here and they had an absolute blast! The museum is well done, entertaining and informative. They kids have tons of hands on experiences and from my estimation never seemed to get bored.

“Great place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

This place was great. I have a 2 year old and an 11 month old and I was a little worried that they would not have a good time. To my surprise, there was an area on the top level for toddlers ONLY. It was perfect. This area allows tots to crawl/ run around. The floors are clean due to the fact that all adults must either remove their shoes or wear slip covers their shoes. The outside area was also wonderful. We will definitely be returning. We had a great time.

“Excellent but crowded”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

I have gone many times to the children museum and it does keep me & my family busy, it never gets boring. Their is alot of light and many activities that the kids can do. I personally think if you have never gone that you should probably go early in the morning because it gets crowded and your kids can easily get lost. It's fun though with all sorts of things to do

“Children's fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

Excellent place to take kids. There are many activities for children to play with. Climbing, building and if the kids are older than 7, Kidtropolis is excellent for them.
