  • We stopped in with the kids one day, there was plenty to do for both even with a pretty big age gap between them. Price is reasonable, and the staff is great!  more »
  • We were able to attend the special NYE day event. Our daughter loved it! WE go to any children's museums while traveling and this one is solid. A lot of education and fun activities. My only comment....  more »

  • Our family loves the children's museum. It's a great place to visit for a while and let them explore in a safe environment. They're also updating their exhibits so that every couple of months you get to experience something new. The staff is always kind and helpful. This is also a great location to have a birthday party. Not only is it fun for the kids but they make it so easy for the parents. Very happy that we decided to purchase the membership so that we can go as often as our little ones want.
  • My grandchildren loved this place. It was great educational play! If you have not been --it is an absolute must.
