  • Fantastic hands on museum for kids, there is so much to see and do here. The STEM activities are especially good in the clubhouse. Great indoor and outdoor play spaces.

  • Great place for 3-8 years old. You can spent hours here. It is a small place that offers lots of activities. All the staffs are very nice, friendly and accommodating. They have a small outdoor play ground with picnic tables and a nature walk. If you're in Lancaster definitely check this place out.
