My 17 month old really enjoyed this place. You get a lot of bang for your buck with both outdoor and indoor activities, friendly for even the littles. I suggest bringing food. There are picnic tables outside. The exhibits were cool, but mostly just the play areas were worth the $8. Nothing "fancy" like a large city might have, but definitely fun. We will definitely go back.
Very cool place my daughter had a great time from the minute we walked in till we left was busy playing with everything in the building. Beehive was cool as well as the slide. Old firetruck and fire suits were cool to wear and sit in the truck. Enjoyed seeing the old cars and model trains. We will be back.
