  • Best place in Raleigh to take kids under 10 years old! Interactive and educational play, arts and crafts, and more!  more »
  • Visited with three grand daughters aged 6, 3 and 2 years. All three loved all the variety of hands-on opportunities and the freedom to run around safely in each area.  more »
  • Excellent stop to let the little ones wear themselves out. There are multiple rooms and floors - there is something for everyone here, from the intellectual to the 'runner.'  more »

  • Absolutely love this place. Free for under 1 yr old, otherwise admission is reasonable. So much to do to keep toddlers and older kids entertained. I wish there was one in Fayetteville, but definitely worth the ride. Only con is parking. Wish there was space for a garage but it's in downtown Raleigh.
  • The museum has a ton of play areas for kids. Each room is themed such as electrical power and money. The kids are just nuts though in each room. They all seemed to be having a great time though. I knocked it 1 star since in the one area there were real saws and screwdrivers and not enough workers watching them that an unattended kid could hurt them self or someone else.
  • Lots of hands on things to do. Large rooms and super upbeat staff. The place is more than reasonable as far as price is concerned. We had a great time.
  • Love the come here with either my 5 or 2 y/o or both. A lot for them to do. We're members, and it has completely paid for itself over the past year. Sometimes has older children here for school field trips that are of an inappropriate age. However, not usually the case.
  • Me kids had a blast. So much for them to do from the pirate ship to the water area and sports area and everything in between. Staff was very nice and energetic with their engagement with the kids. Place was very clean and had a feeling of organized chaos. Think it's time for a membership.
