  • Magical place - 10/10. My kids are 6 and 7 and loved it. I can imagine it would be even more exciting for kids 3-5. Don’t miss the fire truck and dress up on the first floor and the sports/movement...

  • I have mixed feelings about Marbles. The facility itself is amazing— there is so much to do and discover. It is a really cool museum! It is, however, extremely overstimulating, especially if you’re there at the same time as a dreaded field trip group (or 3, in our case). They are supposedly putting restrictions on the number of folks allowed into the facility, which is WILD because I cannot imagine squeezing any more people into the exhibits than were present on both of our visits. Helicopter parents hover around their kids and crowd the space even more. I wish there were more outdoor exhibits or dedicated quiet spaces to help kids and parents recharge. I’d also consider limiting capacity further. I’d be happy to pay a little more if it meant the place wasn’t always filled to the brim.
  • Amazing and beyond my expectations. This place is just awesome. The Parking is right across from the museum you don't have to deal with kids running off. There is a park right across and inside there is a locker box for $.25 so you don't have to carry kids stuff all day. Every attraction has a sitting spots for parents. My son just loved loved loved it...it was very kids friendly and just amazing. There is a big lunch space so you can bring your own lunch which is cool for parents like me that have children with allergies. The cost was fair $9 for all the children entertainment that's wholesome was worth it. ..we are definitely getting membership ❤️❤️❤️ ...I wish there was a higher rating than a 5. I can't describe it all just visit if you have young kids you won't regret it.
