  • It was a place for kids, but I was able to have a more enjoyable and good time as I looked around. I was able to try it myself and was easy to understand.

  • Fantastic place! Good price, 15$ a person. They do have military and senior discounts. The museum looks small but there is plenty to do! Kids had a great time in each section and we were there about 4 and a half hours. Good things for all ages. We brought our 4, 7 and 10 year old. They all had fun. All of the staff are really nice. Some of the things that were really fun, fact painting station, bubble area, water play, fake diner and food and a craft room which was home made playdoh. There is so much more. There is no parking set aside, but they have multiple parking places super near by. Not really any food but plenty of space to eat if bring own food. Would most definitely recommend and we will be going again.
  • $15 for ages 1 to 60. Save $1 per ticket if you show ID for a company that sponsor the museum. It's a mad house on weekends and holidays. Great for kids 3 or 4 to 6 as there are a lot of climbing and water a activities. My 2 year old only lasted 2 hours. A lot of kids who are unsupervised that are free to do whatever. Even kids who are being watched by their parents still behave badly such as take toys out of other kids hands, push, shove, hog activities, spray water on everyone, etc. This is also a great place for parents to interact with their kids. A lot of learning activities. Good to come on a weekday when it's not busy. Best deal is the membership if you plan to go often. Downside is $7 all day parking when in reality it's more like 2 to 3 hours. Members get 1 hour early entrance on Sunday's.
