    This place is awesome! We are locals and have a Family Membership and we come at least once a week. There are SO many hands on and educational exhibits! They have it set up so there are about 10 different "pretend areas." Kids can pretend to grocery shop in a huge store, check eachother out, play games, be a veterinarian and groom/wash stuffed animals, have a tea party, drive a train and space shuttle, be on a TV show, ride in a kayak, be a barber in a bar bar shop & a few more. There's also a huge learning floor with different hands on activities to teach you about science and a gated off area for kids 4 and younger. Outside, there are 3 large wooden tree houses with ramps that kids can play on. Our favorite part....? KIDS STREET! There are kids size houses and little cars thru can drive. It's adorable! Must go see!

    My 19 month old went nuts (in a good way) in here. Favorite spot was the Lite Brite wall on the back of the top floor. She also loved the grocery store. We live about 1.5 hours away but I am willing to make the drive because the exhibits are so well thought out and engaging. Afterward, we got some popsicles and ate outside in the sun while my niece and nephew ran around in the tree house. We had a group of kids from 5 down to 19 months and they all had a great time . Remember to eat before though! No food inside (which is understandable. )

    This is the beat place to bring kids of all ages. There is something that will grab their attention. Even teenagers still have fun!! The staff is very friendly and helpful. I had my sons 1st birthday party here and it was THE BEST!

    Don't waste your time if there is a field trip of kids there. Way too busy to be enjoyed. I was told it typically settles down after 12 noon. Still fun , but too busy to really engage with all that is offered.
