Great staff & exhibits. There's a little bit of everything. No admittance fee but donations are encouraged. Lots to see. more »
Super fun hands on learning. I'm pretty sure I had as much fun as my kids and grandchild. Many photo ops you will only find here. It's a great addition to any downtown adventure. An added bonus is it's very close to the light rail so you can enjoy the ride and not have to mess with traffic or parking
The kids loved playing in the police car with their police uniform on! The retired officers were incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. We had a great morning!
