  • We love this place. I have two teens and this place is full of wonders. We see something new every time. Really reasonable too. If you get the Calm membership, this place is free.  more »
  • My 2.5yr old LOVES coming here. He's obsessed with dinosaurs and they have a good sized dinosaur section. The "play room" downstairs has lots of fun stuff but a lot of toys have missing/random parts. But a very educational place. Every 3rd Thursday of the month they have $2 day. We never miss it!!
  • For the area, actually a very interesting and large space for the kids to explore. We spent about 2+ hours there and the kids saw everything and loved it. Small scale "museum", more like really cool discovery zone for children. Bought some fun stuff and went on a discount day so it was only $2 per person!
