We took our toddler and he loved it. Older children can experience more ch more, but our little guy found it fun. Lots and lots of interactive exhibits. Fun sites like a grocery store, Greek diner, and vet clinic. There is plenty for everybody. Even a restaurant for a meal or snack. The best kids’ museum I have ever been to.

My daughter thouroughly enjoyed this. Lots of interactive locations. Kidtopolis was a unique and cool feature. Much better than the one in New Orleans. Cannot compare the two.

Parking was a little difficult to find due to parking garage being full. Luckily the museum next door had a excellent parking lot w/many vacant spots. The attraction and activities were worth the visit. Although this place was really crowded I will definitely revisit on a less popular day and time. If you have smaller children there is a special tots area on the 2nd floor that worth it all. Also Kidtropolis was amazing!

I don't like large groups of people so this places was hard for me, but my kids enjoyed it and the youngest loved it! I liked the fact that we could just let them run. Security at the door making sure no kids escaped, plenty of staff helping out and watching things happen. I actually had some fun in the science side of things. Always check with them for deals and upcoming free entrances.

Great activities for young children. You can tell this museum has a huge budget. They always have plenty of staff and incredible supplies and activities for the young ones. There are eggs being incubated and chicks hatching, a water park, model airplane and rocket building, and on and on. All sorts of hands on exhibits.
