  • When my grands visited from MD, I thought this might appeal to them. Wow! It ended up being such a hit, they were already planning to return when we left. There is so much to occupy a child's mind and...  read more »

  • I have taken class trips here, my children here and now my nephew here and we always have a great time! The inside was getting an upgrade in farm area while we were here in May, but they created a construction area to make up for it. My 2 year old nephew's favorite parts were the instruments, the mailboxes, the ball tubes, sailboats and the outside park. The outside part has really expanded since my last visit several years ago. I wish he liked the grocery store because I wanted to play in there! My only complaints are 1. they may need an extra person to go through and tidy up from where some children and their families didn't because I had to struggle to get the mailboxes cleared out for my nephew so he could play and there were very few balls available at the tubes. There was someone cleaning up face paint and that was awesome. 2. They don't have the giant light bright wall! My daughter, now 13, asked if they still had it and told me she wanted to come with us next time since she lived going there when she was younger.
  • Lots of fun activities for preschool and elementary age kids. Sometimes feels a little crowded, especially when groups are visiting.
  • Members now for over 2 yrs and love it! Super cool that being a member here also gets you discounted tickets at the Please Touch Museums " in Philadelphia and Baltimore!
  • We spent 2 hours here and still could have spent 2 more. Fascinating activities for my 3 year old, and she could be challenged here for several more years.
  • Extremely overpriced. $9.50 for adults and $9.50 for children over the age of two years old. Parents should cost less because all they do is lurk around while their children play. Although my niece had fun, I would not recommend this place due to the prices. There are definitely other places worth going to.
