  • An absolutely wonderful place with hours worth of fun. We came in at 9 and left at 2:30 and only because we needed a nap. Clean, not like many other similar places. Tons of space to move around...

  • Was not expecting this gem! This is a great place to bring your kids, you just have to experience it, too much here to mention. Did I mention it is reasonably priced.

  • Lots of fun. I have been taking my daughter once a summer for the last 4 years. She loves the planetarium movies and the pizza making play area. We both love the small zoo with unique animals inside. The new addition of a cafeteria was a welcome surprise.
  • Nice 👍. I would recommend the Boonshoft Center to everyone. Young or Aging it's a must see for all. I have as much fun today as when I was young and went to the older one on Ridge Avenue . Going through it brings back so many memories. Please 🥺 go see it and enjoy your day. 😎🐕.
