  • It was a nice place to take the kids. The kids get to interact with displays. The older kids were sort of board and got in the way of the younger ones the displays were geared for.  more »
  • My wife and I take our grandkids, ages 2-1/2 and 4-1/2 to the museum whenever they visit. They clamor for us to go there! All of the activities are interactive and involve manipulating, objects, color...  more »

  • Usually this place is great. But we came today with our family of 4. We live about 40 min away. The main attraction for out little ones is the water and bubbles. That whole exhibit is closed off today. That is a huge part of our experience. Where as I understand the reason. ( they are getting ready for an event they are having in a week) I feel a discount should be given. It's 50$ for a family of 4 to come in here, that's pretty steep normally but ridiculous when a huge exhibit is closed. Then upon closet look many other exhibits were closed as well. Extremely disappointing
  • My 4 kids love this place. It is my favorite place to take the kids when it isn't super busy. Parking can be a pain, but I have come to realize if I can't find parking that's my sign that it's too busy. I love the variety of areas and the rotating upstairs areas. Well worth the membership.
  • Lots of engaging play stations for kids. The water area is unique, and the electrical station is a paradise for kids who love buttons. This place gets very busy on weekends, especially in winter time.
  • Really great place for kids, toddlers and even autistic kids. There is a lot for them to see and be hands-on with! There are two levels. They have stairs and an elevator to get to the upper level. The upper level gives kids a chance to explore their artsy and creative side with artwork and some craft exhibits. You can easily spend a few hours there. They have their own private parking lot. I would suggest getting a family membership because you will definitely go back a few times. You can also use it to go to a few other children's museums that accept the membership.
  • Perfect place to lose the kids (but not for more than one second, the neighbors might notice you didn't bring the kids home). My kids loved this place.
