  • Perhaps childrens museums are just different here from where we are from, but this didn't seem well thought out. Mostly donated things, which is awesome, yet, many things were broken or just not...

  • If you have young children and are in the area, you absolutely have to stop here! This place is lararger than it appears from the outside. It's interactive, the staff are AMAZING and they have live turtles, snakes, birds and lizards, some of which you can hold. We easily spent over 2 hours here and didn't even notice.
  • Great place for kids. Hard for some of the taller kids to sit in a few things, but everyone had a good time. We went the first day they were open on a Sunday. "We were VIP's". Lol. I'm glad they change a few things up every so many years. This time I brought my 9 yr. Old nephew. Years ago I brought my girls a few times. They loved it too. If the weather is bad or they are sick of the water bring them by. They can run and play with stuff without hearing "No, you can't touch that. " There are a lot of places to sit down for parents and Grandparents.
  • We took the kids here yesterday while up here visiting family. They had a lot of fun. Good way to spend a couple hours without spending a ton of money. It's nice that it's also educational.
  • My 2 year old son had an amazing time. There are so many options of things to play with! Even the older kids seemed to be having an amazing time. The animals are phenomenal and friendly. The iguana alone was super cool to watch. My son loved the train set too!
  • Amazing experience at such a low cost! We love swinging into the museum whenever we are in the area and have a blast every time.
