    I brought my grandchildren in July 2016 and February 2017 and some of the games (registers) are broken, however the price still the same for adult and children which I think should not be. Usually pri...  more »

    Took my 2.5 year old here to play for the morning. We had planned to spend all morning playing but after 30 minutes she informed me she was all done. We had seen the entire museum in that amount of time. We would have loved to play outside for a bit but workers had closed the garden area. They claimed they didn't want mud being drug in the building. The rain had stopped several hours before. There just wasn't enough to keep us busy to make it worth the cost.

    Great place for the kids to explore and play. Family membership is a great deal if you're local. Special classes are so also fun for families, extra special learning experience experience. We love to pack a picnic lunch on the summer and eat at the picnic tables.

    There's plenty to do here for a few hours or so. They have things to do outside and inside which is great if there's nice weather. It's not to expensive and I know our daughter loves going and enjoys doing everything.
