Pretend City Children's Museum reviews
My son absolutely loves this place. They have an entire "city" of buildings to explore, attractions, make-believe grocery store and bank, etc. It is very well thought out and a great place for kids.... more »
I took my 2 year old grandson here and it was amazing. He love the grocery store and the music exhibit. This I a great play for little kids to play, imagine and to have fun. Really great play and..... more »
Really great but quite expensive if you take two children and two adults. They have annual memberships that give you unlimited entry for only about the cost of 5 visits, so that's well worth it. Inside, small kids can enjoy some things to climb on and explore and larger kids can try out a variety of jobs, activities, and dress up outfits in the "pretend city".
Great place to come and check out for the younger kids. Staff - Employees here are very nice to the kids, they also make sure they keep other kids playing fair, and do a great job in the arts and crafts room. Prices - Avg pricing for admission but they offer a lot of different activities. Venue - Place is kept clean, lots of play areas, they even have performances in the back music room. Parking - Got here early so wasnt bad but can see it getting busy. Overall great experience and will be back.
