  • it was okay. everyone had fun but I was put off when they charged the same for children as they did for adults. I just find that wrong on so many levels. If you want to rip off adults - fine have at i...  more »
  • They are careful with security. They make sure adults have a reason to be there. The place is clean and nice. people are friendly and helpful. exhibits are fascinating for our young toddler. 
  • Took my two small kids here. We had a good time exploring fun for me as a big kid too! Has a lot of different exhibits for younger and older children

  • Lots of fun for kids and adults. You can spend hours in here with your kids and they will have a blast. I have to admit I enjoyed it as well. There are also plenty of places to sit while watching your kids play. Highly recommend visiting this with your family!
  • Needs a much needed renovation inside. Fix the broken areas. And clean the exterior of the building. The building should promote discovery, imagination, and good vibes. But it looks somewhat rundown, and in a desperate deep cleaning. I expect bright colors, and shiny presentation to accompany the name of this museum. Not black stained walls, and dirty glass. Step it up! There's no excuse it can't be better than it is right now.
  • THIS PLACE IS FANTASTIC!!!! MY TWO YEAR OLD SPENT ALL DAY HERE!! SO MUCH TO DO :) A MUST IF YOU ARE IN THE AREA AND WORTH EVERY PENNY!
  • It's a wonderful play place for kids of all ages. While playing games and doing activities the kids learn a lot about nature and the world around them
  • Great for all ages. I thought I would get bored, but ended up having a great time! Informative and Fun!
