  • Amazing place for young kids of all ages. My son enjoyed the fire truck :), playing the organ, model kitchen etc. The light place was innovative and engaging. I recommend for families with young kids who have just started exploring things.
  • 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 great museum for kids aged 7 and under! We love it!!
  • 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.
  • 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.
