  • Took my 3 1/2 year old grandchild She played for 3 hours. Museum is a bad name as it is really a play space. And a very creative one. You can't be worried about germs as the toys are very handled and ...  more »
  • Very disappointed! Visited museum with 2 1/2 yr old and and stayed only one hour as there was not much to really capture his interest. Museum is small with mostly imaginative play, dress up activities...  more »
  • spending time at the museum was great Lots of activities and day to day pretend play. Planned on staying an hour, but kids were entertained for 3 hrs. Very much fun  more »

  • Very special place to take the kids. Where play meets learning. Specializing in early cognitive development through play with lots of exhibits.
  • Truly a great place to stop. They let us park for free and go get lunch before entering the museum (which does have a moderate fee). Happy, friendly, nice people that like kids, which was great for our grandson!
  • It’s difficult for me to understand why they would charge the $8 admission fee to adults that are only there to provide supervision, much needed as you won’t find an employee at any part of the exhibit. Also the bubble exhibit hasn’t worked since we 1st went and yet it remains there.. why?
  • Nice place but it is very small. You can get through it pretty quickly.
  • I dont ike this place one bit, like the workers were so rude and embearising to this company. The kids there were bad influences to my childs. They told my kids to "shut up" this kind of language is unaccepted in my vegan fam. #Blessed
