  • This is not one of those state-of-the-art, high falutin' type of Children's museum. It is fairly small but it most definitely captures a spirit of play that all children enjoy. There are several fun a...  more »
  • A mini version of the one in San Diego. They are always changing things up and moving things around, so it has a fresh feel every time we visit. Both of my kids love it, and so must many others because parking can be a challenge. Not to worry, just park at Grape Day Park across the street. We have had an annual membership for several years, and appreciate the military discount too.
  • Great place for kids to play and learn. Lots of things and activities that are fun and exciting. My daughter will be 2 in 2 months and she had so much fun. She cried when we left because she didn't want to leave, she was having fun and wanted to continue playing.
  • They have some interesting exhibits. My children were fascinated with the tube into which you put a scarf. They have a time where you can feed a chicken. They had water tables. Garden areas. Different types of blocks. Typical play structures. Pretend play area. My older daughter really like the doctor area which had three different "rooms." I liked how it was pretty accessible to all the ages of my children 1-7. Most of the stations are not really like a "museum" ... more like an indoor and outdoor play place. They have lots of offers for military and veterans. I do think their staff could use a little work in customer service though. For that I took off one star.
  • Really cute little place. Our son loved everything but the lego water tables were his favorite. Next time Ill bring change of clothes. Only downside is neighborhood which had limited parking and quite a few homeless across the street.
  • Me and my son go all the time. We absoulety love it. Its a great place for the kids to learn and play.
