  • My 2 year old loves this place!! His favorite activities include an ambulance and a small plane you can climb around in, the face paint in the theater room, the plastic produce market and all the Legos and blocks to play with. We love the 2nd floor addition and are anxious to see their future plans come to life!
  • A wonderful place to take the kids for the afternoon or all day. Lots of interesting education displays that kids can learn from. Lots of stuff to engage adults as well. Highly recommend.
  • A++++ Our grandkids, ages 5 and 2 1/2 love love love this place. Often meet their friends there. A real gem in the 'Burg!!
  • The kids and I had a blast! Has an impressively extensive amount of things to do.
  • Great place for kids. The second floor opened and provides so much more space.
