  • The concept is good but execution, not so much. Legos in racetrack area fall apart before you even get them to the track because they are so used. I would say it's good for four and under only. I have...  more »
  • This was a surprising find on the main shopping strip in Hendersonville. Our toddler was getting tired not being allowed to touch anything or run in the stores. For $5 per person we went and had a cou...  more »

  • Great place to spend anywhere between 1-3 hours. Lots of varied spaces. Very friendly staff!
  • It was lots of fun for the kids but much smaller than I thought. Small kids enjoyed but my bigger kids got bored with it fairly quick
  • For the price you pay and the simple fact that it is non-profit its a pretty nice place. My daughter especially enjoyed the "grocery store" they had where she could shop, pay for, and ring up groceries. They have a lot to do but it is a LOT smaller then I imagined. It is all one floor with several different areas. My kids are 18 months and almost 4 and they had a good time. Pros: As described, several different play areas Nice for all ages Primarily clean (could have done better on the restrooms) Good price Non-profit Cons: Small On the main strip so parking is..... minimal One really big con for me was that they don't monitor the areas so kids were, for example, taking 5 dolls at a time and putting them into the wrong area so other kids did not have a chance to play with them. Or taking the shopping carts out of the shopping area and running a muck with them. I understand this is not the museums fault, its crappy parenting honestly, but the volunteers could do a little better to walk around make sure things are tidy / in the correct play area. Overall, would recommend and will probably return in the future.
  • Worth $5 a head to bring kids to a place that is fun but yet educational!
  • My son loves it here, the staff is friendly as well. Lots of places to sit and for the kids to do. It's worth the $5 all day play. You can come and go without having to repay to come back.
