    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 »

    There are so many things to do, it allows the kids to be super creative and explore. From dress up to building, and the exhibits changes every so often. A membership is totally worth it! Also, a blue star museum, offering free admission to military families memorial day to labor day and discounts year round.

    My three year old son had a blast here! There is lots to do and explore. I love the fact they have hand sanitizer stations and a water cooler for the customers. I would definitely come back.

    We love this place! There are many interactive displays and things for kids of all ages. There is also a separate section for little ones under 3 and there is a very fun water table outside that doubles as a lego building table. I love that I don't have to spend a ton of money for my girls to have a full day of fun.

    Great during slower times. It's like a mad house during the popular times. My toddler is too overwhelmed to do anything. Love that the theme changes frequently.

    I LOVE this place. It will be my new must stop any time I am in the area now. It is like they took every idea for my kids off my pinterest page and made it into a museum. New, modern, hip and cool. We had a great time!
