  • We took our 6 year old grandson here and although he enjoyed it, I personally, as a retired teacher, felt it is more for toddler age to 5 age appropriate. It is not very big but does have hands on act...  more »

  • Staff is friendly. Great place to take the kids. Good adult friendly seating to interact with kids. Has Outdoor Equipment for nice days. Lots of options for different age groups.
  • A fun place for my 3 year old. They have a great membership price for families and military members. Love the kitchen area and the huge blocks.
  • First off, let me say that my children ages 3 and 1 both had a blast here. The whole 5 hours we were here they were entertained. That being said, I was disappointed by how small the "museum" was. It really should be called 2 rooms with little activity areas to play in. And when we went, it was not the cleanest and the play areas had very little to play with which meant kids had to stand around waiting for other kids to finish with the "exhibit" before they could. Its a nice place to take the kids to blow off steam when its cold or rainy, but not something they should charge adults for. Some of the exhibits like the stairs on the firetruck and the ladder didn't seem safe for children to play on either. The ONLY reason I gave it 2 start instead of 1 was because my kids had fun. But from a parents point of view, its not worth the money.
  • I love this place! Such a great place for kids. It's not huge, but there's a lot to do here. There's even a toddler area for the little ones. The staff is so friendly and everything is kept nice and picked up throughout the day. I highly recommend for birthday parties! The outside area could use quite a bit of work, but I think they have plans for it.
  • Excellent place for small children. There were some really nice play areas where children can play and learn about different types of stuff ranging from planting veggies to fire trucks and boats. Best for toddlers. They have story time and a small shop for snacks.
