  • The Children’s Museum is a great place for kids. I highly suggest checking on their website for field trip activity. They show how many field trips are planned for the week on their site. I realize it...  more »
  • It was a good place to take children where they can touch everything and play. The water area very good. I did feel the price for adults is a little high.  more »
  • The people that work here simply have the patience of saints. The museum is great for kids, probably up to the age of 10, but ideally suited to younger children.  more »

  • Fantastic outing. Kids love it every time we go. Was a member, will re-join next time in town. Absolutely great experiences here, lots of great memories.
  • It's really a wonderful kids museum. It's age appropriate for toddlers though adults. They have a "nursery" area that's great for kids under 3. There's also a "water play" area, that's really fun. If you plan on going to the water play area, bring a change of clothes, because your kids will get wet. The cost is a bit pricey, but it really is a quality place to bring your kids.
  • We absolutely loved the museum! The only "down side" was you needed to have swimsuits to do the super awesome water works on the 2nd floor, and we somehow missed that. BRING SWIMSUITS!
  • Great experience. For families with younger children, take the elevator directly to the second floor. Work down from there. Also, the water play on the third floor is full on water-play -- plan accordingly!
  • Nice little museum. Could easily be triple the size. Needs more interactive displays.
