  • Two grandparents, two kids age 9 & 12, and we really enjoyed the visit. The hands on displays were fun for all of us. The price is right, low crowd on the Saturday after Halloween, definitely a fun....  more »

  • As a family, we had so much fun here! I wish we would’ve had more time! The kids enjoyed the crafts and especially trying the prosthetics. There is a lot to see and do. If we lived closer, we would definitely visit again! The staff were all very kind and helpful.
  • Wonderfully interactive and historically beautiful all at the same time. Rarely can you find a place that appeals to a wide range of ages all together. We had a lot of fun competing in a game of who can calm themselves the most, yes they can tell electronically. I loved roaming the halls and seeing the delicate wood cavings while my kids worked on making paper projects on the first floor.
