  • Lots for the kids to do. Very interactive. Make your reservation - they close to clean after shifts.  more »
  • Amazing place for kids off all ages! Only reasoning for 4 stars is because it could be a little more clean. They have a fun area for kids under 3 years old, which is great! Knowing kids these age are on the floor a lot it would be nice it they kept the floors well vacuumed. Other than that they have friendly staff, new exhibits, indoor and outdoor activities! Great for really hot summer days when you want to be in the AC.
  • EdVenture is so much fun! It's always clean and the staff is friendly. Eddie, the giant kid/playground is a neat feature where kids can play and learn at the same time. It's nice having a place the at kids can run around, play and learn all at the same time. Food at the cafe is reasonably priced and surprisingly delicious! The cafe also has a small carousel that kids can ride over and over again for one price. My kids are 7 & 9, and still love EdVenture.
