  • Great place on a cold day! My 7 and 5 year olds both found lots of fun and engaging activities to do. It helped that I was excited to support their building since some of it is actually challenging. We all had a great time.
  • Excellent visit! Lots to do, play, and see! I think we could have spent all day there if I had a much energy as my kid! 😂
  • So far, my favorite indoor place to take our kids. Lots of fun, interesting activities for young children. Facilities are very clean and it's rarely crowded. My only complaint is their bizarre parking system..
  • Great place to bring your kids to have fun indoors. Lots of STEM exhibits, play areas, train sets, interactive play areas, and more. Parking is free. Get the membership and save money if you go often.
  • At first glance it doesn't look like much however my grandson had a blast! He is very shy so at first he wasn't sure what to do so I took the lead and after a few minutes he was exploring, socializing and learning. There are many hands on things for younger children to do and the employees are easy going and friendly. The farmers market after play time was a bonus.
