  • My two year old love this place. There was so much for him to do at a affordable price. We spent about half of the day there, though we could have stayed longer. My wife and I enjoyed seeing him have so much fun. There are two floors of exhibits where he played. Plenty of buttons and levers for him to play with. There was also a lot of learning opportunities for the older kids. I would recommend this place to anyone.
  • It's a great place to spend half a day with kids. Our 2+ year old loves it. Staff is nice and they keep things pretty clean. There's a nice, little toddler area tucked away behind the big ship on the first floor.
  • You can get through this place in about an hour. It has a lot of fun things to do, but you can bounce from one exhibit to the next pretty quickly. The most impressive is the model train exhibit
  • My kids loved the Children's Museum!! So much for them to do. We spent the day there and could have spent more time. Only wish they had some where to get food or drinks. But 2 floors of fun and great imagination play. My kids didn't even realize how much they were learning :-) highly reccomend taking the kids for a day trip.
  • One of the best interactive children's museums we've been too. There is something for all ages. Very clean and the staff was super helpful and knowledgable. There were so many different exhibits, we spent all day there. I highly recommend as a mother of kids ages 10, 7, 3 and 10 months.
