  • Best place to take the kids on a very hot or a rainy afternoon. We love it here, we go at least once a week, my son just can't get enough. His favorite is the fully stocked grocery store! It's a must ...  more »
  • This "children's museum" is an old house filled with toys and playsets for toddlers and very young children. We came here after reading the TA reviews, and were under the impression that the entrance ...  more »

  • A wonderful place full of charm. The building is historic and has an old cozy warm feeling. Every room has a theme and is well equipped with toys. We came for an hour and ended up staying for 4 hours . Nancy, the new director is very welcoming and eager to involve parents in the development of the place. I highly recommend for kids 2-8 and for parents with an active imagination.
  • We have two toddlers and they love it here. We have to tear them away to leave. We just bought the yearly membership because we know we will continue to come back. They are building two new attractions a pirate ship and a water play area. Great for kids 5 and under.
  • Was a little hesitant with a 4 month old - but we both loved it! Everyone was super nice and great way to meet other moms. Love all the rooms with different activities in each. Looking forward to the story time classes!
  • Always have a good experience. Staff is very pleasant. It is indeed small, as it is an old house converted into a children's museum, it consists of 6 rooms, 9ne for story telling, one for a tiny little one's playground, another a grocery play, doctor's office, baby paded room, and another with little trains, kitchen. My 4 year old loved coming and playing as well as my 8 month old.
  • I saw that there was a museum where my daughter and I had lunch and I thought well we have time for a museum. I drove around and around and saw this little house but didn't think that it was it. I kept driving around. And when I finally realized this was the "museum" I was like yeah no. And we left and found something else to do. I think that it shouldn't be called a museum. Maybe a baby/children playhouse but not a museum especially after reading some of the other reviews. They are saying it's not worth the trip or the money.
