  • Worth the membership. I was apprehensive and wanted to think about it. They refunded my admission cost for the same day that I bought the membership which was great. We love coming here and along with the awesome reliable exhibits they keep things fresh with seasonal rotating activities.
  • This is a wonderful children's museum, the play areas are geared towards toddlers and Pre-K, and for older kids there is an auditorium and puppet show space, a maker studio (with recycled goods) and a clay studio. Don't miss the "underwater" black-light room if you have little ones that like to chase each other around. If you are going solely for the Eric Carle exhibit, it's pretty light, only featuring a few originals, most are reproductions, otherwise, have fun playing!
  • First time taking my daughter to this museum and first time for me. She loved it. She was a little on the small side for a lot of things but that didn't stop her or me. haha.
  • A fantastic museum for kids and their families. Activities indoors and out for all age ranges. After an hour and a half visit, we enthusiastically registered our granddaughter and her parents as members!
  • Transgender not welcome. Over the last week I've heard that the zoo parking lot has been great for catching Pokemon and finding other trainers to socialize with. I decided to go see what the fuss was about it today and I sat down outside the museum with my friend who tagged along. Not 5 minutes in I was approached by a manager of the museum who asked me to leave the premises. She said that adults aren't allowed to sit outside for more than ten minutes. I said, "i'm playing Pokemon and I'm not a pedophile, I'm a paramedic." She insisted that I leave and i told her that I would once my lures were done. I then walked a ways away and found another spot to sit and play and I watched the museum. I saw crowds of 5-15 people come and sit for hours on end with no manager approaching them and asking them to leave. Yes, I am transgender. No, I'm not a pedophile. How dare you demand that I leave your premises because of a made up, bullshit rule and then not enforce it on the others around. How. Dare. You. You will hear from my lawyers
