  • Definitely a great place to bring the little ones. They may not have what a major museum would but they have a lot of interactive exhibits for kids.
  • So many hands on activities! Not a museum at all- fun learning place for kids. My 4 year old granddaughter loved it!
  • My 10 month old had so much fun exploring and I loved watching him!
  • This is a great place to take your young kids. There are a lot of interactive displays for them to learn about, but also to have a fun time. The only downfall is there are not many attractions, so after about an hour or two all the fun has been had.
  • Great place to take grandchildren!! Lots of activities.
