  • Took our 3 children ages 2-4 and had such a fun day here. Loved the pretend supermarket and cafe. I probably would not come on a Saturday again as it was super busy and you feel rushed so other kids c...  read more »
  • Was there for a children's birthday party. We had a wonderful time. There are a lot of interactive exhibits for kids of all ages. The "green screen" was a fun feature. Our 3 yr old granddaughter had a...  read more »
  • Yes this is better than in a non-peer, children can learn a lot by hand, where touching the Gemini where, but admission is a little expensive. That way I can take a picture.

  • There's a ton of fun, interesting things for kids to play with and explore here. There's painting, drawing with markers/colored pencils, using musical instruments, and so, so much more. Entrance fees are incredibly reasonable, and it's very easy to spend two or three hours here having a total blast.
  • I love bringing my children (7-2) here, some of our favorites are The Whole Foods, Potbelly, Face painting, and the Art Room. Only wish we could go outside in winter. But also totally understand how difficult it would be logistically. We have been members a few years now and go quite regularly, ands they still haven't tired of Kohls yet.
  • This is a great place for kids with many different sections targeting different things. There's are areas for playing with musical instruments, make-believe doctor's office and sandwich shop, fun with water, and many other things. If you can't find a way to kill a few hours here with kids, I'd be shocked.
  • Very fun place for kids 1-7. They have a great mix of things to do from books to taking care of pets, playing with water, shopping at a grocery store, and many other things. One area consistenly gets updated. Currently (May '16) it is a sponsered area by a Sprout TV show focused on exploring the senses. Overall, this is a great place to play and have birthday parties. The only reason it is not 5 stars is that some of the areas are starting to look a tad bit run down. Not unexpected given the joy it has brought to so many kids over the years...
  • Lots of cool stuff for the kids to interact with. Some of the areas were in need of maintenance, though. The smocks in the water area were in need of a good bleaching. Don't forget the outdoor areas.
