  • Great children's museum geared for play. Newly renovated so the bathrooms and new locker/eating area are nice and clean. My kids ages 1 to 6 had a blast discovering different play areas like the new ship, the water play room (bring a change of clothes!), Egypt adventure and so much hands on Discovery area. The new sky climber and slide are fun - a little scary for my younger kids and less climbing than there used to be, but clean and safe and fun. There are some great baby areas too, so I felt like everyone could play how they wanted to. Recommend a trip here with kids!
  • Awesome awesome place! We took our 8 month old and was able to enjoy all three floors! Great touch/ explore the senses attractions even for the littlest hands. The staff were very helpful, they have socks you can purchase. Will be coming back in a year or two when our child can do more things and explore and learn in new ways. Highly recommended!
