  • Great place for the kids. Closed on Mondays. There is an upstairs area just for kids four and younger, where they can play and even an art area, which is very nice, especially when school field trips are there. There is a fantastic water area, so if your kids like to get wet, definitely bring a change of clothing. Cafeteria has been recently renovated and is now actually one of the best healthy and tasty food options available at a kid centric place. Price is a little on the high end, but quality of food is also high.
  • PROS: - Just as the title implies, your child(ren) will always have something to discover every visit. - My kids are never bored here! - Awesome cafe with food and drinks geared towards health. CONS: - Parking sucks. You have to pay.
  • This museum is so fun! We took our 1 1/2 year old here and he had a blast. There was so much for him to explore. The water play area and the play kitchen area were fun. The upstairs early education area was his favorite and perfect for ages 5 and under I'd say. So many activities to engage all the senses. We ate lunch at the cafe and it was overpriced and just ok tasting. But im glad we had the option since we didn't bring a lunch. Our son was too excited by all the activities around us to eat so next time we'll eat outside or before we arrive. Bring extra clothes and socks - he got soaked I'm the water play, even with the aprons.
  • Great place for kids under 4 or 5. Relatively small, so easy on parents.
  • Awesome place for kids of all ages. Even young ones (as long as they walk) will have plenty to do. Two things: food options are limited and very expensive, and it's crazy packed passed 11:30am. Come early (10am) and do the less packed things at the end.
