  • We visited Wonderscope last week, and we really enjoyed our visit (2 kids aged 2.5 yrs old and 16 months). This place is very age appropriate for my children and both kids had a blast. I liked that th...  more »
  • Several rooms with different themes for kids to play. There's a two and under room that is a plus. But they can also go into the other rooms and still have fun. Great for fun and learning.  more »
  • I've been taking my now 1 year old son here since he was about 6 months old. We love it! Each room has a different theme and includes something for everyone. The museum serves a wide range of ages as ...  more »
  • Yes, the musuem has some items that are showing a little wear and could potentially use a good scrub. However cleanliness at any kids attraction is just an illusion so washing up well afterwards is a must no matter where you go. The point to me at least is that my 2.5 year old learned something and had a good time. We have come here about 5 times within the last couple of months and stay about 3 hours each time. My only suggestion is that you call first and see how busy they are. The first time we went there were 3 separate daycare groups of mostly older kids that were a little roudy and would desend on rooms in clumps. Not the kids fault they were just excited , but really the adults should have put them in smaller groups. Instead we kept having to switch rooms before we were ready so that my daughter wasn't being pushed off of stations by kids 5 or more years older than her.
  • It seems like each time I come (which is weekly) an attraction or room has changed according to need or guest suggestions. Very kid friendly, clean, and well maintained!
  • My 5 year old and 3 year old really enjoy Wonderscope. As others have said, is is an old school where each classroom off a long hallway has a different theme. We have only been twice, so I don't know how it will be the tenth or twentieth time, but so far so good. It was a little pricy for the three of us to go one time ($21), but for only $50 we could buy a season membership making it worthwhile for bad weather days. They just opened a new exhibit off the farm, a shopping market, which is a huge hit. So much detail went into it and it is adorable. There is a water table room- beware, a change of clothes is a good idea if you are going to go in that room. Again, only our second time, but not crowded for a Friday. The last time we came was on Spring break. It was pretty busy then, but even still, not as crazy as I have seen at other children's museums. All in all, a great place and happy to have it nearby!
  • My favorite place for a field trip. The kids never wanna leave, and they always wanna go back.
  • Lots of fun things to do for kids 6 and under. Lego sub, water table, veterinary office, painting room are all pretty nice. It seems ever kid loves thw golf ball room and the apace room.
