  • Fun place for the kids, but I think the features and exhibits could be better maintained. Lots of the loose pieces that make exhibits and activities interactive are missing, some don't work properly. Though, it doesn't stop the kids from having s ball. It would be nice if they could learn more from complete exhibits.
  • It's ok. I've been to better kids Museums. We made the mistake of bringing out 10 year old daughter. She was too only for the activity they had. I would say 7/8 would be the cutoff for kids. If you do go purchase your tickets in advance. Fortunately we did because we went on a Sunday and the line was out the door down the street.
  • Huge children's museum that is dominated (in a good way!) by the 3-level climbing structure at the heart of it. The exhibits are at a variety of age levels, and there's something there for everyone. Lots of hands-on stuff. The water exhibit on the top floor WILL get your kid wet! Use the provided water protection if you are at all concerned (this could be a bigger problem in the winter). Also check out the mystery house on the top level. Older kids (with some guidance?) can really enjoy solving the mysteries. Our kids were scampering all around the exhibit to search for clues and test them on the machines.
  • Great place for kids. It has something for every age. With that being said, the bulk of the place would be more enjoyed by the 7 and older kids. My kids are 1 and three, and they loved the water table room the best. Playing music in the Toddler room was a close second though.
  • I've been here several times for work bringing kindergartners on a fieldtrip and to bring my own children. .. non stop fun!! They absolutely love it. That big contraption in the center is amazing. Every parent is standing around it looking confused when their kids go in and you don't see them for a few minutes lol luv this place.
