  • I brought a 2 year old and a 5 month old. The staff were really kind and great at interacting with the kids. I loved that there were gates areas, so I didn't have to shadow my 2 year old the entire time. If you have babies, the museum is excellent because the noise of the other kids is loud enough that a baby crying isn't out of place. Extremely stroller accessible, and there were nursing rooms for moms as well.
  • This place is fun for pretty much all ages of children. My 11 month old had tons of fun in the discovery cove section. The also have a really great art room that we really enjoyed.
