  • We had an amazing time here. There were activities for all ages. We wish we had had more than one afternoon to explore. We could have spent days exploring every inch of the museum. The piano staircase was a major hit! We loved all of the age appropriate hands on activities. I feel like this was the second best kids museum we have been able to enjoy. The first would have to be Ed Venture in Columbia, SC.
  • The best place to take your energetic toddlers. My 4year old son had a blast. This place is well catered to toddlers. Alot to discover in one days visit. Staff is there never had to speak to anyone. Guess that's a good thing. Any highly recommend this place 5 stars.
  • My 4 year old could spend the whole day here. There is so much to do and she always learns so much when we go. Also, it is SO CLEAN which is seriously amazing for a kids place! We spent 4.5hrs there and still didn't get to see and do everything so we will for sure be back. Also, they have a small nursing room so if you have a breastfed baby its nice to get away from everything and feed the baby in peace.
  • Absolutely fantastic experience. Great play space for children featuring water play (bring a change of clothes!!), dramatic/imaginary play, and art/craft/wood shop. Great experiences include classroom, farm, grocery, kitchen, fire truck, ambulance, animal hospital, the red car, theater, boat, electric station, sports/gym, Pizza restaurant, gardens, underwater submarine (yellow, for The Beatles fans), pirate ship, and more!! Upstairs there is a climbing... Thing too! Enjoy!! No drinks (or food) allowed inside but the gift shop does sell coffee that you can drink in the lobby. This is slightly annoying but I totally understand and is nice not seeing spills/crumbs everywhere...
  • My family had a fabulous time at marbles. It was worth the drive. My son loved all of the different areas especially the kitchen and water play. It is well design so even when it's crowded your child still has room to play. They do not have a lot so we parked at a parking deck which was $2 an hour. We had a good meal at the cafe on site. I would say this place is great for children up to age 12.
