  • It's a great museum. It's tiny but somehow you can spend hours here. There is a great toddler area. Restrooms are clean. If you have a SNAP card, admission is $3 (2017), otherwise, I'd consider it pricy and probably wouldn't come.
  • Came here a ton when I was little and always had a blast, recently revisited and it still feels like a great place to be a kid in.
  • A great place in a city that does not always have a lot of options for young children
  • We love this place. There's lots of activities as well as a large variety of things to do from splashing around in some water. Playing in sand with lots of toys, creating lots of things with learning toys, climbing, science experiments, and to much more to list. It's pretty inexpensive for a family of 3 or 4 for what you get. The facility is pretty clean and the bathrooms were also nice and clean.
  • The place needs more funding. And it shows. There's still a great time to be had for the younger kids.
