  • Fantastic place for adventurous kids. I was concerned it might be too advanced for our three year old but he cried after leaving 6 hours later. There are numerous indoor and outdoor activities and the cafe is actually very reasonably priced. If your child likes water bring a change of clothes and some water shoes. :-)
  • My kids had a great time. It was a little warm for doing all the science exhibits but once the kids hit the climbing structures indoors and the creek outside we were all much happier. Great tip I read: bring the kids a change of clothes because the creek and mud are hard to resist.
  • Lots of fun exhibits for the kids. They even have a stage with a sound effects booth and nice costumes.
  • Brought my little girl here twice. The first time was when she was around 2 years old. She didn't have as much fun back then compared to when she went at 3.5 years old. This time, she definitely loved playing in the backyard/garden. It was an extremely fun place for her. I think if we didn't do anything, she'd have stayed there for the entire day without problems.... and probably forget to eat too. This place is a good place to go for kids after 3 based on my experience.
  • Great place to visit with your kids. La y hands on things to do. Its not your average museum.
