It's a great place for the kids to release their energy and learn how things work. The whole place is one big interactive playground. My grandson loves the water station to the point that I have to ca... more »
I took my 2 son’s, Ages 3 & 6, for the 2nd Time and they love this place. The highlight for them is the water station. They get to connect the tubes to see where the water leads. They have a bit of mu... more »
My family and I visited this place based on several site recommendations that this was a family friendly event center. What we found was disappointing to say the least. There was mass chaos and the ex... more »
So this is more of a Children's Activity Center not a museum. Don't expect any exhibits but plenty of things for your child to do. There are multiple areas with different themes - a water room, a stage, a craft room, a play area and one large room with a few "sciencey" things. Easy for a kid to stay busy for a couple of hours (which is good since you're paying $9 per person to get in, except Friday which is $5.) Big downside - lots of parents don't supervise their kids. They've found a chair or wall and are on their phone while the kid runs wild. Bigger kids try to boss smaller kids or horde all of the interesting toys and there isn't enough staff to help manage it. So you need to be proactive with your kids to make sure they don't get steamrolled by other kids.
It was fun. But they only had 2 staff members working, none of which were supervising the floor. Yes I know parents are SUPPOSED to watch their children but they don't. And the ones that do have more than one child so it's hard. So I think a little extra guidance from staff would be helpful. Furthermore, there were children clearly older than 3 in the designated "under 3 years old" area, who were way too rough to play with my 17 month old. So he didn't get the experience he should have & that we paid $25 for.
Awesome place for the little ones- great activities and special events. Super affordable too
Awesome place to you take the kids. They loved the painting area and the air time section.
My 32 month old son enjoyed his time there. Many of the activities were geared for him. It would be nice to have more personal picking up and making sure things are safe. I would also like to see more signs with Science explanations. I would suggest not going around noon time as there were lots of kids. Over all I will be taking my child back.
