Went with grandkids ages almost 7 and 4, parents and grandparents (us). This place absolutely rocks. Every exhibit and activity has been carefully thought out & designed to tease, appease and please kids! Even so-called adult kids. Our kids played nearly every outdoor exhibit, especially...More

Fun, friendly children's museum. Very clean, many activities available. Exhibits are in different buildings, and many activities are outside....so this should be considered before visiting on a rainy day. Staff is excellent...engaging, knowledgeable, helpful.

Pricey, so that's why only 3 stars. The average working family would probably not be able to afford this museum. At $13 for each adult and each child a family of 4 would pay $52. That prices out working class families.

My daughters are 4 and 6 so I worried about whether or not they both would be interested in the activities and sights that the museum had to offer but it was perfect for their age group. They made friends, played with clay, dipped their...More

Staff is friendly and venue is nice, however, it is too small to make it worth your child's time. Too crowded with too little to do. Maybe on a slow day it will be worth it but not on a Weekend with many people around.
