  • Watch the faces of your children as they are captured by the creative play. Whoever designed this museum/play area has to be a child at heart, mother, teacher, or all three.  more »
  • It definitely was super cute, but it is basically a single room that is actually pretty small with different areas of play. It was too crowded when we went and it didn't appear they cared about how ma...  more »
  • Took our 18 month old grandson and he had a ball. Many different play areas: restaurant, doctor's office, gym, building zone, fishing boat.....Clean and well-maintained. Staff friendly and helpful.  more »

  • Lots of fun activities for kids. Great for rainy days or sunburned days. The science experiments on Thursdays are fun. Great variety of age appropriate things (I'd say up to 12 years old would enjoy it). It's a bit small.. Don't expect a museum by any means. It can definitely get crazy on busy/rainy days. There's a FANTASTIC outdoor park a few miles south if this place is too busy or not to your liking.
  • It advertises itself as a small place, which it is, but my 4 kids had a great time there yesterday. It is geared towards a younger crowd, but they did have an upper play space for older kids. We will come back again on our next trip.
  • This is a fun place for families of young children on a rainy day at the beach. They have multiple exhibits that foster imaginative play and learning, including a teddy bear hospital and play fishing boat. There is also a stage with costumes for kids to put on their own productions. Kids older than 8 or so would probably get bored quickly, but younger kids will have a blast!
  • This is not a museum. It is a large enclosed play area with lots of toys for small children. So if you have a rainy day at the beach and the little ones are making you insane. This is an excellent place to take them.
  • My Toddler loves it here perfect spot for play dates and parties wish there was one closer to Manteo though😁
