It's worth every penny! So much for for kids 10 and under. Purchasing a membership is really cost effective. more »
My husband and I took our two kids ages 3 and 2, plus my brothers ages 8 and 11. They all had a great time and said they would like to go back. It was a little busy, and some parents were letting their older kids run around and act crazy. But all in all we had a great experience and will definitely visit again!
It is still fun but could use repairs and update A LOT. The same electronics are still not working, like in the NASA exhibit. While other equipment, have been there since I was a child. The play-clothes look like they need to be cleaned or altogether replaced. I have been coming since I was little. Field trips and with family. And now I bring my own children. Still a great family place, but being in downtown and being so widely known, it would be nice to see it better taken care of. If you are going to charge, it would be nice to play with equipment that do what they are supposed to.
