  • We spent hours at hit small but activity packed "museum". It is not so much a museum as a learning center for young children who get to shop, climb, slide, touch sea creatures, sit in skid-steer's...  more »
  • My daughter and I had a great time at the Museum today. An excellent place for young children, and a great place to learn. It's not a very big space, but my understanding is that they want to grow...  more »

  • Needed a quick trip to get some energy out of my 7 year old. I was expecting a little more than what was available. For 6 dollars a person (parents pay too) I guess I thought I was going to a larger place. Some things that I wish I would have read before I drove the half hour. 1. This is in a strip mall for size comparison purposes. This is not a building. 2. The touch tank isn't always available. 3. Everything is self lead. You walk around to different booths and areas. Even the art area had no direction. 4. There are some great concepts, but not much works. Buttons that didn't work, a mock store area without a working cash register. Etc. I would come back to allow my child to play again but I wouldn't have this as a must-see destination on our tour of Maine again.
  • A great place to learn and explore with your little ones. My older children even love going to interact with their 3 yr old sister. đź’“
