  • My grandkids often ask me to take them to this wonderfully interactive museum. Since many exhibits change there is always something new to explore. Their favorite part is the climbing maze. So be sure...  more »
  • Plenty of things to do for kids. Stimulating and fun. Programs were available as well. Our girls had a fun time and we didn't even see all that the location had to offer. Has indoor and outdoor areas.  more »
  • Love! There's enough exhibits to keeps the kids interested. Our kids are 4 and 7, I feel like it's perfect for toddlers to kids under 10. Bring your own food to have at the cafeteria. They have a couple of vending machines that sell drinks, ice cream, snacks but no hot food. There's a microwave for use. It's clean
  • Plenty of educational fun for tots and school age kids. There’s plenty of space for the kids to run, climb, build and explore indoors. We enjoy the classic exhibits like the blocks, bubble room, sensory room, as well as the temporary exhibits. In the warmer months, the side yard transforms to a gardening and water play area.
