“You must guide your kids”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

It is very small and without parental guidance kids just run around, crawl into spaces, pull levers without thinking. You have to be prepared to tell kids what is there.

“Fun place to spend a few hours”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

We were looking for something to do for a few hours and saw the Children's Museum - our boys are 9 & 10 yrs so wasn't sure if there would be enough to entertain them however they enjoyed it.
