  • This is a fantastic kids' museum. It has so many exhibits that we didn't even get to them all in the first visit. My 4 year year old loved it, but I think it does a good job of creating learning oppor...  more »
  • My husband and I took our daughter who is almost 2 years old. We had a great time, but she was a little young for a few of the exhibits. She still had a blast and we will definitely stop back by if we...  more »

  • We love this place and drive almost an hour to get here at least once per month. Membership pays for itself if you go more than three times per year. The staff and volunteers are friendly and engaged. The variety of activities is awesome with something for kids of every age. We have been taking our kids since around age 1&1/2 and it has been a great place to track their physical and mental milestones because each visit they usually try something new or are able to do something they couldn't before. The member only parties and events are great too. Do not deny your young kids this experience; it's well worth it!
  • The museum offers LOTS of opportunities to explore. The kids can have hours of fun. The scheduled events are wonderful - visiting artists, dance instructors, musicians interact with children and create wonderful programs for kids to enjoy. Annual family memberships are affordable and are worth investing into. The only negative my family encountered is the fact many of the toys/equipment/play areas are not in great condition. The obvious minimal wear and tear is understandable and expected (like faded colors or chipped paint), but in this case some of the items are broken and non-functional - it defeats the whole purpose of them even being there. That's the only reason it's a 4-star rate, not a 5. I would still recommend checking it out. It's a great location for hours of fun with friends.
  • My toddler was non stop go go go as soon as we entered the doors. Very interactive and a great way to get some energy out as we were on a long road trip. Really smart and fun experience. My only suggestion is that the water area was a bit more kept, but overall we love it and this will be a future stop on our long drives. Thanks.
  • This museum is one of the best we have visited! We are so fortunate to have this in our backyard. There are travelling summer exhibits, an outdoor garden/literacy exhibit, a splash pad in the summer, and tons of indoor activities. It's a great place to visit when the weather is too hot or too cold because it's mostly indoors. We have been members for years and continue to love every single visit. Great for kids of all ages, especially 3-12, but babies have fun too for sure.
  • We love the museum!! We go multiple times a month. The membership package is wonderful.The visiting artist are engaging and fun. The activities are regularly cleaned and repaired. It's a wonderful place for children and adults. My only suggestion would be more seating for the adults.
