  • I brought my 3 year old granddaughter here and she had a great time for 1.5 hours after which she was exhausted and fell asleep on the ride home. The place is small but was not crowded on a Friday afternoon during school vacation week. Lots of creative hands-on activities for young ones. Adults mostly sat around looking at their cell phones while the kids entertained themselves. I had a great time little-people watching.
  • Great time especially if you get there right when it opens. Otherwise, it was a crowd fest from 11am on. The interactive play areas were great. I wish they had one more floor of interactive exhibits in addition to the two they currently have. Overall, a good time with difficult parking availability.
