  • We've been twice. There are areas for both my 5 month and 2 year old to play. I appreciate the hands on STEM activities. Staff members are on site to help navigate. As a nursing mom, I love the quiet room that has comfortable seating for everyone. I don't have to wrangle the toddler while nursing, because there are toys in the quiet space too. In addition, outside there's a duck pond and playground. We are most certainly going to purchase a membership.
  • Fun for kids and adults. You can build a fort out of giant foam blocks. Need I say more? Lots of STEM activities as well, and it's fairly cheap to come here. Recommend for families on a budget.
  • This place is a magical wonderland! There is so much for kids to play with and do while learning and using their imaginations. My daughter has had a membership with her grandparents for a year and just renewed. We also attended a birthday party that was handled beautifuly. Their activities and their processing are all well thought out and perfect for kids and young at heart.
  • I recently visited the MUSE with my 5th grade students, and had a great time!!! We were running late, but they graciously accommodated us, and provided everything we had scheduled. The Forces in Motion class was fun and educational. Our planetarium show, Seeing, was also informative yet entertaining. Exploring the numerous areas of the "play floor," was our favorite part. The students appreciated the fact they were able to freely explore on their own. The teachers appreciated the fact that there were MUSE guides to help keep an eye on everyone! If all this wasn't enough, their outdoor pavilion and playground provided the perfect place to enjoy our lunch. The playground is not your average swing set and slide. The merry go round is one-of-a-kind, and the students are still talking about it. On our bus ride home, they kept thanking us for taking them, and asked when they could go back. We will be adding the MUSE to our must-go-to list!
  • Couldn’t speak more highly of the MUSE. Great for kids of all ages! We go a few times a month & we love our membership.
