  • There were many neat things to see here and it kept our family of 5 busy for an hour or two. Clean and well kept. We purchased the combo ticket and we consider it money well spent. We're glad we visited! Recommend this for adult and young children alike! Great indoor activity if it you end up caught in the frequent summer showers here.
  • Spent 2+ hours there and it could have been longer if not crunched for time. Best to buy combo deal vs only entry as many site seeing packages are offered. Located in the middle of everything to walk, see, and do on the street. So much to read and do. Even a 5 year old found it interesting and interactive. The pic included is an on hands manipulation in creating lakes and mountains of various sizes, shapes, and elevation pending your imagination in a visual sand box! Really cool... Could have played with it much longer than we did! One of many things for kids and adults to do.
