  • I don't have kids myself but when I was a nanny I would always bring the kids here. They have tons of crafts, sensory rooms and fun things to do. And the best part.... It is free. Highly recommend!  more »

  • It was a great place for kids to express their creative side! My only complaint was that it was kind of difficult to find where the different stations were. Where to do what. Other than that, it was a neat place for the kiddos!
  • Great place for any artist! So many things to do, and the melted crayon area is a blast! Make sure to reserve before you go, but during the week the wait isn’t so bad. I like how only a small group are allowed at a time, it helps keep everything clean and organized.
  • It’s free, but you have to get a ticket for a time slot. Hallmark Cards supplies children with materials for craft making. You can design your own puzzle. Enjoy dripping wax in the black light room. #LetsGuide familyfriendly and yes there are restrooms located inside the art area.
  • Very fun place to take the kids. Lots of opportunities for different kinds of art fun. Kids and parents love it. If you have different ages of kids have a plan for who keeps tabs on who!
  • So much fun for the kids! I couldn't believe the variety of arts and crafts! We had so much fun. I can't believe it was all free. Hallmark is amazing!
