  • A wonderful place to take children of any age! My two and a half year old granddaughter had the best time and wanted to go back every day of her visit. I recommend a membership. Great on a stormy day!
  • Great children's museum.. plenty of updates throughout the year to create a unique and enjoyable experience for each visit. They've got a soft play area for the younger kiddos and everything from crafts and reading to shopping, science experiments, and building. The town on the 3rd floor is excellent and kids love using their imagination in each of the individual shops!!
  • This place is great for young kids. we took my daughter there and could not get her out of the supermarket section. There is a stage on the second floor complete with costumes where kids can put on a show.There is a water table that captivates me every time to the point my wife has to pull me away. And I am 33 years old. this place makes me feel like a kid running around tinkering with everything.
  • Kids love this place! Awesome set up and very educational! A membership is highly advised!
  • I have been here a few times, with large groups of kids and just wirh my own. It is great. There is so much to do, and everything is a teaching experience; from the activities to socially. There is enough to play all day, and a space for you to take a break and enjoy lunch! We can't wait to go again. It's nice to find a place that doesn't break the bank.
