  • My boyfriend and I took my kids over here for an afternoon of fun and they absolutely loved it! The museum is full of hands on exhibits so kids can learn while they play! There is a section on farming entirely, the path of crops once they're harvested, the machines used to milk cows, and displays on farm equipment. They had an outdoor exhibit for kids as well with a small climbing wall, a hose to water the outdoor plants, and a sand box. On the ground floor there are Heath oriented exhibits, like a dentist's chair and something that you can use to look at x-rays, and a neat machine that monitors your heart rate. For the price of admittance, we had a great time! Will definitely be back!
  • Displays don't change often. That being said, the displays that are there are pretty entertaining. To story climbing maze, interactive educational displays on wind/coal energy, fully equipped theatre stage, a fantastic painting room, big village to play pretend, large hands on water feature, and definitely more... Lots to do. The birthday party package is fun and easy. The staff is extremely pleasant. I have a 2,3, and 7 year old and they all love when we visit.
