  • Our summer program enjoyed going the first year. We received the run around when trying to make arrangements for this summer. We were told 2 different prices and when we asked about a group rate, it was higher then the normal rate. The woman we tried to make arrangements with was extremely rude. We were told to leave a voice mail for another employee that deals with group rates and she called right back with the higher price. Sadly our nonprofit summer program will not be visiting this summer. As an employee of a nonprofit, I find it very sad that another nonprofit would handle business so poorly.
  • Kind of hoped there'd be more for kids. They found it kind of boring.
  • Neat hole in the wall place to visit. Nothing fancy but a good place to wonder around. They have a cute little gift shop as you walk in the door too.
