    They have a childrens story time and coloring area... Then your children get griped at for touching the walls... Then you get griped at if you put your toddler on your shoulders to keep them away from the art. Just not a good place to take toddlers. Honestly, I would probably enjoy visiting without children, but I would not recommend their story hour.
