  • I love the Experience Childrens Museum. This place has so many activities for kids. My little one loves the water table. There is a bubble feature and an aquarium, a lunch room and some other stuff on the first floor. The second floor has toy trains, and a huge tiny town including a Wegmans! There is a stage and costumes as well. The top floor also has some science related features and a really neat feature that uses balls and forced air! The bottom floor is great for little kids and has a toddler area, more aquariums and areas to draw and color in, as well as a reading area and some digital interactive stuff.
  • Took my 2 yr niece to children's museum. She had such a good time. She didn't want to leave. The highlights are the water table, the little house and the amazing Wegmans replica! I've heard the museum offers great classes as well.
  • The museum is always clean and so much fun for my kids while they learn! The staff are very friendly and one of them actually plays with my daughter for a few seconds here and there while she is walking by.
  • Definitely targeted for younger ages but educational and fun for little ones (5-6 or younger I think)
  • Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Unique building. Lots for kids to do and learn. Offering monthly classes for 6 month to preschool aged children.
