  • Interactive, is probably the best word to describe it. This is definitely a favorite destination for my kids for both the inside and outdoor options they offer. While it may be a more obvious observation to note it makes for a great instructional and fun experience for adults and kids alike on a rainy or winter afternoon, it also boasts a great outdoor spray park in the warmer months.
  • Great science museum for kids. Lots of hands on exhibits, puzzles, and an amazing ant farm. They have an outdoor water play area for the kids that is great on a hot day so bring a bathing suit and towel.
  • Easy to get to, great balance of fun and enriching activities, I love the fish and turtles in tanks! My kids love the place, been going there since my son was 3, he is 8 now and my daughter is 6. The trails are nice, and the "river" behind is great in the summer, bring bathing suits and a towel and prepare to spend all day!
  • I get a membership every year! "My son and I" love going here to play. Not just for kids,adults will love visiting as well..
  • Awesome place for kids! lots of hands on activities, awesome water table / splash pad outside. kept my 3 kids entertained at ages 1 3 and 5 as well as parents and grandparents.
