  • There was a wait but we went on a rainy day during spring break. Not a big deal since we were able to go to the science building while waiting for the Children's Museum (main building). It is ideal fo...  more »

  • We have come here a few different times, once for a visit and than once for my son's First Birthday! Both times have been amazing. The changes for the Discovery woods are wonderful looking forward to the next big update.
  • They have a lot of fun activities to do with kids. The science museum is great for slightly older children and the other building is great for toddlers and preschoolers. I take my nanny kids here all the time and we spend hours doing crafts at the invention station in the science museum. There's a lot of construction going on currently.
  • My kids loved this place. The only reason I don't give them 5 stars is that they do not have a designated indoor snack area. They only offer the picnic tables outside and a bench where kids can sit in the discovery area. I understand it is because the museum is an allergy friendly space but a designated eating area would be nice. Other than that, the staff is really nice and helpful.
  • We went today and it was way overpriced and I was not impressed at all. My child is two so she did enjoy herself but it was sad. It's just a bunch of themed rooms with a few toys in them. Everything is in desperate need of a makeover at this point. Not something that will probably interest my child later.
  • Great place for younger kids to explore, the yearly pass is completely affordable and so worth. My kids go once a week and never seem to get bored.
