  • My dad and I brought my 4 year old son to this and he loved it. He was able to play with a lot of different things, learn about different aspects in the world (grocery store, doctors visits, flight.....  more »
  • A great place for kids to play and learn. I take my grandchildren there frequently and they never want to leave. There are many fun, interactive experiences.  more »
  • Great place for kids to run and learn. Relatively clean considering the huge volume of unsanitary humans that move through the place. The parents do tend to helicopter a lot and it's a victim of it's own success since it's so awesome it tends to get too crowded for my kids to be able to stand it, but they compensate for that with sensory friendly nights and members only workshops that are more my kids' speed. I keep thinking my kids are outgrowing it since they've been coming here pretty consistently their entire lives, but they keep showing me new ways they are learning here. I've been coming here since I nannied in college and it's been a consistently awesome place for the 15 years I've been bringing kids here.
  • It’s a fun place for kids. Lot of activities and beautiful designed. But hardly anything for babies it’s a great place for toddlers & kids. On last Friday of every month the museum has a free entry which makes it more fun. The staff is good! And the place is well maintained. I definitely recommend this place because kids will love it for sure.
