  • Amazing place to take the little ones. It is $12 a head and parking isn't free but on a rainy day this will keep your kids busy having fun and learning for hours. Memberships are available as well for those that are interested and there is a gift shop inside. There is an outdoor play area as well with tons of fun activities.
  • Great amazing awesome staff! They are so kind and helpful! My kids love this place and it isn't so crowded so we can enjoy ourselves. Pay to park on street or in their lot. Also during summer, the man made stream outside is great to play in.
  • Our toddler enjoys the Museum so much! Everything really is hands on and a great opportunity for kids to learn different skills, build with different materials and experience things that can be difficult to duplicate at home. We enjoy the lazy stream outside which anyone can use without a pass to the museum. They have preschool options, parenting classes and parent's night out, and lots more.
  • This Children's Museum is FANTASTIC! We had a lot of fun there and the exhibits are in really good repair. I spent 5 hours there with my twin 4-year olds and they had a blast. Parking is a bit limited and it was a bit stressful when we had a hard time finding each other on the different levels of the climbing and slide part.
  • Such a fun place to release my kiddo to play. He has a ball. Only downside is how busy it can be. If you have an energetic, kid, take them here and let them have fun.
