    We took our granddaughter to this museum, and it was so much more than what we expected. There is so much to do for kids to play with, and it is very enjoyable for the adults to see their children learn. There are several rooms with all kinds of tactile items to interact with. I don't want to give away too much, because I want people to be as surprised as we were when we got there. The story time and art classes with Miss Sima are the true highlight of the museum though. She is an amazing and patient teacher. She taught the children how to make pinwheels, and all the children were completely focused on her instruction, which is not always an easy thing to do with 3+ year olds. Lastly, they have a new area with stand and play water models where the kids can play with boats and watch how our water systems work. We will definitely go again. This is a place your children will never get tired of. Enjoy.

    We love coming here! The imaginative role play is endless with the doctors office and grocery store. We love the indoor playground and story time too. The membership is worth it for rainy day play dates all year long.

    I had no idea this place was here. It's a wonderful little area that has a large open area for children to play, a playground, tons of activities outside and also has a bunch of fun things to do indoors as well. This place also is a great spot to have a birthday party.

    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.
