  • Based on the creations of Vernon Grant, this is a very interactive and joyful place for the young. Climbing, crawling and creating up and around the indoor playhouse. Your kids will love it.  more »
  • Definitely worth a stop in if you have the time. I wasn't sure i'd find much in a "children's museum" but it is very creative.  more »

  • It was great for small children but not a place where you'd stay for hours on end. Even though any toddler would love it here and would never want to leave, lol. But it gets the little ones out the house to explore and experience a different environment and new faces along with other children. Just a joy watching and having that big smile on their face while having fun in their own little world. Would return again just for them.
  • Price is acceptable and my son had a great time. We were there a little less than an hour and a half. There are also some other nice places in the area to walk to
  • This place is so cool! Great for small children! Lots of fun things to explore and do. Definitely for younger kids under 6. I don't think bigger kids would enjoy it as much as it's intended for young children and toddlers.
  • Converted from an old bank into a fun place to let your kids run wild. Great for kids up to about the age of 8. The old bank vault and it's giant door are still there and have been turned into a costume room full of outfits and princess dresses for the kids to throw on over their street clothes.
  • The admission is $6. per person. It was $18. for my wife, daughter, and me. It's a neat play area for the size space, but there is nothing for parents to do, and it's not really educational. Older children will quickly get bored. It's geared towards K-3rd grade aged children. If they only charged admission per child, I would say it was worth it, but the fact that they charge adults as well, makes it much less attractive, as does the large request for donations that is front and center, as part of the old bank vault door. I'm not sure why it's called a museum since there are no exhibits, aside from some Vernon Grant art reproductions near the restrooms, and scattered around the play area in odd fashion. You can see his art for free at Glen Cairn Gardens. They will also try to upsell you a yearly family membership for $85., which includes Historic Brattonsville, and the Museum of York County. The MYC is free admission on Sundays.
