  • My son loves this place we drive once a year out to San Antonio and stop here on the way back to Austin. My son especially loves the space center dressing up like an astronaut and the bat cave . He sp...  read more »
  • Took my 2yo grandson for an afternoon together. A great place with multiple play area inside and out. Each area has its own theme from music and water to art and space. My grandson ran from area to ar...  read more »
  • This place is fantastic for young children. We took our 4 year old grandson who just loved it. Price of admission very reasonable. Go there to enjoy your young ones. 
  • I travel from San Antonio to bring my 2 year old here all the time! It's such a fun place where toddlers can run around. Weekends can get very busy and sadly they are closed on Sundays. My favorite time to go is around 3pm Mon-Fri. That gives my son 2 hours of uninterrupted play because it is usually very empty. His favorite part is definitely the grocery story. In there he can push around a basket that's perfectly his size. They also have a spaceship, bank, hospital and outside you can find water tables. Make sure to stop by the painting room! You can put an apron on your little one and let them get messy. Also, make sure you bring a change of clothes! If your child is anything like mine they will get soaked playing with the water tables.
  • There are several reasons I didn't give them 5 stars. First, there are no attendances watching areas, cleaning up or answering questions. Parents let their children roam freely and wild. They are allowed to take things from the grocery store to the space center area for example. The bathrooms were not clean. The outside play area that is not covered can get dangerously hot! I saw a little one fall and burn his knees and hands on the rubber matting floor. If it weren't for these reasons I would have given it 5 stars. The facility is nice and offers educational hands on learning for the kids. Worth $7.50pp.
  • Well i give 3 star because my children enjoys his self here but we came for the time on March 17th for my sons birthday and the things that were broken then are still broken when i return in June. Cash registers are still broken. They need more kids dr equipment in the medical area. And lots of areas need a fresh coat of paint. This place is as much as the thinkery but they need to keep it up as much as they do.
  • This is the perfect museum for kids ages 1-10. From a spacewalk, bat cave, hospital, bank, grocery store, dress up store, etc. The outside play area is really awesome too. Easy to keep track of kids because of the set up.
  • Took the kids and they had an absolute blast!! They have several different themed rooms for the little ones to play in. Everything was clean and in great shape. If you want to give the kids something to do, it is perfect!
