  • This is a wonderful place to explore with your child. From a toddler to maybe a 5th or 6th grader. So much to see and do. Lots for the imagination and little hands. Wonderful respite from the summer h...  more »

  • We were there for free toddler Tuesday. My 1 year old had so much fun exploring. His favorites were the train station, painting, turtle tank, and the wind tunnel that shoots items up toward the ceiling. He also loved the outside section. They also had toilet training information and giveaway that day which I loved. My only complaint was having to pay full price for my ticket. He's only 1, of course he's going to have an adult with him so I still had to pay to take him to the museum on free toddler day. I'd think one adult (whether with one child or 10) should get in free... just my opinion.
  • Great kids museum with friendly staff. It is smaller than the larger kids museums in the area (Austin, San Antonio) but still great for a day out. It has some of the very standard features like water tables and grocery store that kids can't get enough of then it also has very neat things of their own like the moon walk and the air tubes which the kids wanted to do over and over.
  • I can’t say enough good about this museum. I was honestly surprised that is was this good for being a small town museum. There’s plenty for children to do and we spend hours at a time there with our 3 kids. It is a very clean facility and they have a nice gift shop if you’re interested in purchasing goodies for the kids. The outdoor area is great as well.
  • My 2 year old Loves this place. There is a lot for children up to 8ish to do. Great outdoor area, bank, play house with slide, a grocery, camping, wind tunnel fun, train tracks, camping, astronauts and space and medical clinic and a ambulance. There is also a tot/baby area that is sectioned off. They do crafts and have fun days for specific activities. The only thing I don't care for is that you have to pay for children and adults. $7.50 per person, I think.
  • Very neat place to take the kid. Kids from 2 or 3 all the way up to 10 or 12 were having fun. My 4yo loves it. There are several different rooms set up with various activities to keep them busy. Favorites include putting on the astronaut costume and walking through the outer space exhibit and the huge climbing tower out back. Honorable mention goes to the tiny grocery store inside with kid sized baskets and little cash registers for them to act like they're shopping . Overall a huge hit and a great place to kill a few hours in a positive way
