  • This is a toddler's paradise. It didn't feel small as there are many activities inside. My 2-year old had a blast. Much of the decor is definitely dated but looked clean enough. An employee was walkin...  read more »
  • I took my 2 young grandsons (3 & 6). They absolutely loved it. But as I was watching them, I noticed the inch thick dust on top of the covered slide. I wanted to ask for a dust cloth and just do it. A...  read more »
  • So for the people that say it's's a "hands on children's museum"... what do you expect??? So it's an old building and needs some TLC, but any kid I know under 10 LOVES IT! They are working...  read more »
  • I really wanted to like this place but it was dirty and not welcoming. The place smelled terrible and was very unclean, you can tell they never clean or disinfect anything. In fact the "toys" in the kitchen were mostly old cereal, pizza boxes, old canned food and many other misc items. These items are impossible to santize. Ive had 3 people tell me thier kids got sick after playing there. We were playing by the trains and found ants running around all over the floor. The front counter lady is not friendly, barely speaks or makes eye contact. She obviously hates her job and when we went out back to have a snack, the eating area has cigarette ashes all over the ground by the picnic tables. Terrible place to bring children. The idea is cute and the play areas could be nice if it were maintained and cleaned properly but by the looks of it nobody at that place cares.
  • It looks small from the outside, but there was so much going on inside. It was fun for the whole family. Wheelchair basketball, mini winn dixie... I was pleasantly surprised.
  • This place can be fun for little kids I'd say 6-7 is the max. It's a really fun concept but needs to be updated. It's a little run down. We were just there for a bday party and the ac in the rear where the party area is, wasn't working. We were over it in about an hour total.
  • I have been taking my Grandson to the Childrens Museum for the last year and in this year I have seen definite improvements to the facility . New roof, new AC system, new and improved train play area. This is a public location and your child should always be closely supervised but this place has areas for the use of a child's imagination that evolve as the child does and is amazing. I highly recommend this facility to anyone looking for a fun digital free afternoon of imagination.
  • We recently visited. I had a negative perception of this place. That was a mistake. My kids had a blast. They played non stop. The staff was super friendly too. We will be back.
