This facility could easily be a 4 star even with the high price if it wasn't for the utterly uninterested staff. The facility was nice with numerous fun areas that my 3-yr old daughter could have spent the entire day at. We even enjoyed a short presentation by one of the adult staff. Unfortunately, the teenagers that were working there sat around like bumps on a log and never interacted with the children. I'm not sure why they were even there except to pick up. So, we had to figure out all the activities ourselves. In the end, with my wife there as well, it was a very expensive playground.

A group of us went, just to look. We didn't even have kids, and we were entertained for hours. I thought it was so amazing. The science projects were cool, and interactive. I love the giant piano.

The pictures and the information on the website are very misleading. None of the workers knew any answers to any of my questions and had to keep getting the manager.

After spending time in museums where no one could touch anything, we all enjoyed playing with the ball tracks, water features, climbing toys, coloring, and tons of other things. We got to see the last weekend for the Wizard of Oz display on the second floor.

Great for kids and adults with ever changing displays and plenty of things to keep the kids busy. Plenty of parking and reasonable admission prices.
