  • There is a lot to learn here so you probably think the kids won't like it but no, they will LOVE it! Every bit of learning is interactive and it's up to us to tell them what they are learning in a HUG...  more »
  • Great place to visit with a variety of exhibits, most hands-on. Don't expect to spend a lot of time there though. It is pretty small in size.  more »

  • We spent the night during a scout lock-in and it was so fun! They had a few activities planned, then "scavenger hunt" driven free-time, dinner and a fantastic breakfast, and even opened the store for souvenirs. They were very accommodating and everyone had fun!
  • Very interactive and fun place to let the kids explore. I would say it is more appropriate for elementary age kids. They just loved it and learned a lot. This is a play/ experience and learn place, not a museum.
