  • This hands on children museum is run down and several of the displays are not operational. This was the worst children's museum I have been to.  more »
  • We took our granddaughter. She had a blast. One of best hands-on museums we have ever been to. Great crafts area. A few things not working correctly. Should look for retired engineers to help.  more »
  • Took my grandson here and he had fun and liked it. This is good place to spend a hr or two with your young kid. A little pricey in my opinion but worth it if the kids like it. If you plan on going mor...  more »

  • This is lots of fun for kids. There is a bunch of interactive exhibits that they can play with. Everything from a grocery store, a bank, airplane, a big operation type game, and many more things. It is starting to show its age a bit. There is a lot of wear on on different exhibits, but it is still a lot of fun. One of my daughter's favorite things is the "secret" slide to the downstairs. Parking here can be a little difficult at times. Not a lot of close parking spots.
  • Really fun place! Our kids loved it and it was a lot more fun than I anticipated. The Tesla expedition totally worth the $2, that was probably my favorite part.
  • Love this kids science museum. Highly recommend it if you are visiting the area. The exhibits are well kept (considering they are played with by children all day). The place has a certain charm to it. The Tesla experience was super fun.
  • The Hands On Museum typically has the same stuff, but kids LOVE going back. Usually kids will meet other kids and they can have fun together. There are so many different things for kids to experience (a mini shopping store made with recycled food/drink containers, a stage with lots of different costumes, a robot arm, stuff to build). I think it's way fun for children (seems most are under 10), and the staff there are SO friendly and help whenever they can. I would definitely recommend a trip!
  • Great place to bring the kids for an interactive learning experience. So much more than the standard museum experience that puts kids to sleep.
