  • We had so much! Great place for children and adults as well! Good to spend time in winter with your family.  more »
  • Love the Children's Museum. Perfect for romps with the kids. Love the interactive exhibits. It is a fun play and learning space.  more »
  • Amazing! Multiple floors with a variety of exhibits for kids of all ages. Our two year old enjoyed the toddler area as well as the rest of the museum. Everything is well-planned and thought out. I especially love the “calming rooms” where I was able to nurse my baby in a quiet spot while my husband chased our two year old. We are visiting from out of town but will definitely come back on our future trips!
  • We have taken our kids to this museum many times and they love it. Since their ages have ranged from 2 through 9 on these visits, I know the museum is fun for those ages. Since the parents and grandparents have had fun, too, I'm not sure it isn't great for all ages! Ages 6 and up especially love the laser room and the craft room. Ages under 6 love the fire engine, mail delivery activity, and anything with water! What's even better, the kids often fall asleep after their visit, so adults get a little respite!
