  • This is a fun indoor activity with lots of interaction exhibits. Geared more towards young toddlers - 10+ years old would likely get bored quickly.  more »

  • The museum itself was fine. But if you have traveled in big cities, this will feel like a rip for the price. the bottom level is the main level for kids 5 and up and they have a top level for younger kids. Most children's museum has enough to keep your child occupied for an hour or so and this one fits in that category. But it just was small and didn't have very many exciting exhibits. **keep in mind, I am comparing them to big city children's museums so if you are used to none or small ones, then it probably won't bother you.
  • The staff has been a bit unprofessional lately. Be warned if you have out of network membership. I got quite the attitude about it the other day after they have no way of verifying it through their network. They didn't even attempt to make the effort to offering to verifying. Snotty attitude from the employee and luckily the manager there wasn't terrible about it but could've been better. After coming here for few years I feel it's a place for older kids. Yes, you can bring your baby and toddlers but it provides very limited play area for the little ones as far as what they can reach and play with. It is a nice clean place. I just feel they could add more things within all the space they have which feels like a waste. We took our youngest recently and she wasn't really attracted to a lot of things other than the dinosaur area where there are some sands. Again, if you have children 5+ this may a good place but paying nearly $10 per person including adults it's not the place I would want to go often. First time visit is always fun; if anything I would get the family membership so you can use the pass everywhere around the country.
  • We love this place and make a point to stop by whenever we're in the area. One of the best we have seen!
  • I bring my kids on a monthly visit and they still love this place. They change the themes all the time to keep it interesting. Great for all ages
  • Fantastic place to take the kids for a day of fun and exploration. Don't forget to take your hand sanitizer!
