“Great experience with our visiting grandson”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

Our son, daughter-in-law and 2-year old grandson were visiting from Virginia for the holidays. We were looking for something special to do with him. He is a very inquisitive and busy young man, so the Children's Museum seemed a natural. We had never been there. It was great. He was initially a little overwhelmed, but quickly settled into "exploring". It has a few "exhibit type" venues (aquarium, parrot cage, etc.), but most things are hands-on play or experiment areas. There were several dress-up areas; an acting stage with appropriate sized king, queen, knight and ladies-in-waiting, as well as animal costumes, a fire engine with flashing lights (thankfully no siren) and kid-sized firemen's hats and coats. There were coloring and painting stations and a fishing flume with magnetic fishing hooks (came with boots and waterproof smocks to keep clothes dry). There was an Venturi blower where they could "float" ping pong balls and colorful scarfs. There were NUMEROUS building things; large Legos on a table, magnetic chutes and tracks to allow a ball to tumble, movable gears to create machines, translucent colored pegs in slots with lights behind, etc. There was also a neat grocery store with an ATM machine, small grocery carts, plastic foods and a laser check-out. Our grandson was kept busy and mesmerized. We were kept busy watching, following and snapping photos. It was a very enjoyable time. I believe admission was $5 each for adults and kids. You could get your hand stamped and thus leave and come back all day if you wished. A neat place where we will now bring other grandchildren when they visit.

“Nice time spent with kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

The museum is very small. I think it's family owned. Can get very crowded on the week ends and in summer. Can spend good hour - hour an a half. They have separate baby/toddler area. Dress up, puppets, trucks, grocery/farmers market, little art center, blocks, checkers, air and water play areas with tiny boats and fishes(not real) to catch. Over all I would recommend going here if your kids are 2-4 maybe 5.... older kids might not enjoy as much.
