  • Super fun activity for toddlers through 8ish. Many interactive rooms. The options change over time as they update the rooms. The water room is one of our favorites. Don't miss the cafe down at the end...  more »
  • My girls love this place. The rooms are themed but leave plenty of space for imagination. Daily admission seems pricey, but the pass is well worth it for locals. We come a couple times a month even though it's a 20 minute drive.
  • My family loved this place. Our daughter is 14 months and she had a blast. It was mostly younger kids, which was nice for her to play in. There are rooms that older children would enjoy as well, but probably no older than about 9 or so. It was tons of fun and really affordable.
  • My 4 and 7 year old did had fun. It is an old school building and doesn't have updated exhibits, but kept them entertained for about 90 minutes. I wouldn't recommend for any older children. Probably not worth the $ since you could to to park and use your imagination for free and they do charge adult admission which I've never seen at a children's museum. Not near as nice or fun as any other children's museums we have visited. Kept them busy for a bit but not somewhere I'd choose to visit again.
  • My kids absolutely loved their first visit. The veterinarian pretend play is fantastic. The art room is a fun space for kids to truly be creative. Fun place all around and staff are very cheerful!
  • Our three year old had fun going from room to room doing all the different activities. We spent two hours here with our friends and their kids and felt the price was well worth it.
