  • What a fun place to take my 9 year old niece. The robot bugs were a lot of fun and educational using games interactive displays. She also loved the giant bike and sitting in the antique car. If I had a group of kids to entertain I would definitely bring them here.
  • It's wonderful to see where places came from and the future of where the places are going. The kids also love the play place.
