Similar to the children's museum in Winchester, VA; its an inexpensive visit the kids will enjoy even if an adult will realize it's nothing truly that special... Not greatly maintained but clean enough to feel comfortable. The best part is the creativity room in which there are plenty of arts and crafts, paint, supplies, etc for the children's (and yes adults as well) imaginations to run wild. Overall cool place for the kids. I would recommend, I'm sure they will enjoy for 3-4 hours.
My kids enjoyed here, with so much of space to play, painting, do some creative activities, drawing, reading..., They had so much fun and they don't want to leave. Great place to spend the day with kids where they can enjoy their time with new friends. Entry is free only for under age 2.
