  • Excellent for the kids! A lot of activities and a great staff to monitor them. It's a full day or more visit
  • There are only 3 exhibitions opne since they are remoddeling. Waste of time and money
  • Warning, it's a kid's place, if none are coming with you, you can skip it. For kids it's one of the best children's museum I've seen. You will spend a few hours in there if you let them play with everything
  • Great spot for a weekend with the kids. Really great activities and games for them. We love it!
  • Nice museum for kids. Try to avoid the weekends.
