  • The children's museum has activities for all ages. The main floor entrance level changes a couple of times a year. Currently it is all about astronauts and space. That part is more geared to older...

  • Very beautiful facility! Completely ADA compliant with elevators and wide spacious areas throughout. Friendly and professional staff. We had a very enjoyable experience with the whole family, there are things to do for children as young as six months all the way up to 14 years old. The activities are not only entertaining, but engaging and educational. We planned to spend an hour and a half here and we ended up staying for 3.5 hours, just took our time on a Friday afternoon and it wasn’t busy so it felt like we had the place to ourselves. The planetarium is incredible and worth the visit all on its own. Accessible and clean restrooms on each floor equipped with baby changing tables.
  • This place is AWESOME! Easily could of spent another day playing. We loved the blending of art, science and math. The staff was super friendly, kind and knowledgeable. My son is 7 and he didnt want to leave when they were closing soon. There's so much to do and see. Not just the activities and art but the building itself was beautiful. Perfect way to spend a Tuesday in roadschool. Many thanks to everyone there for an incredibly enjoyable experience.
  • This is a wonderful place for the whole family. I love the planetarium, which is included with the $6 admission price. There exhibits are changing all the time so you could see something different with each visit.
  • We had a great day today. My kids are 15 and 11 and we enjoyed our time there. Definitely worth the visit for all ages!
  • Extremely unprofessional establishment. Went on a field trip with group called Michael’s Angels. We serve a low income and black population. Called two days in advance to schedule a reservation and spoke to a woman named Adrienne. Adrienne said she would schedule us for 1:30. I asked her to confirm this multiple times over the phone. Upon arriving at the establishment, we were told they did not schedule us for a real appointment. Instead they put us down tentatively which was not mentioned over the phone. The entire staff treated me and my group extremely disrespectfully. As a non profit group, we are used to being treated less seriously, but the utter disrespect this “museum” showed us is unbelievable. Not scheduling us for a real visit is unacceptable. The actually facility is not kept up properly. Found many bugs on the ground and in play areas. Exhibits were below average. One showing was actually a health hazard as it included flashing lights and lasers with no warning for epileptic children. Edit: Throughout this whole experience, the staff were yelling and following our kids. One white man in particular grabbed one of our children and pinched her while reprimanding her. He also blocked her path when she tried to disengage and find a staff member of the camp. After that encounter that I witnessed, he stated that “he didn’t want us here.” His major complaint was that the children were not cleaning up and were not well managed. Unsure what this meant considering we were in an open play area with various toy sections in which many children were running around and playing freely. He only chose to yell at our children.
