  • We have a membership and love it. Lots to do with the kids. Nearly everything is hands on. Fun for the parents as well. There is a toddler area that our little one loves. The only bad thing I can point to, and its not the museum's fault, is that you will see and deal with a good amount of kids where their parents are just staring at their phones and they are doing things they are not suppose to do. Other than that this place is great!
  • This place is great! My family, which includes 5 kids between 4 and 14, spent more than 3 hours here, with everyone (including me) being entertained the entire time. They had a wide range of hands-on displays, with several different topics from music to natural science. We all loved it!
  • I only give it 4 stars because of size and types of exhibits. We have traveled to many cities and children's museums and I would say the best part at this on is the music area. Kids love beating the drums ND playing the guitars. I really like the outdoor music section too! Very creative. Overall a nice museum to let kids play and explore. But after you go once or twice, it seems like the same exhibits are still there and older kids can get hired but if you have a membership​ than it's a great place to go for 30 min to an hour even if they have been several times. I hope this review helps.
  • Wow. Fun place. Went with my 11 year old son & had a blast. So much to see & do & play with! It's definitely a hands on place. The membership is way worth it.
  • My 10 year old though it might not be a cool museum.... boy was he wrong! He had a blast and I did too. Very cool learning museum. For ALL ages.
