This is a great place for kids to explore! So many hands on experiences. Cool little gifts to buy, toys and items to keep the kids busy! Wish they still had their haunted house in October! We loved it!

A heads up- they are only open to the public in specific time blocks-- I tried to take my daughter and didn't realize the time restrictions, I just assumed it was like your typical kids museum where you can go anytime. There are quite a few neat stations/sections in there to explore & kids seem to really enjoy themselves too!

This is perfect for any age. Lots to do and see. There are a lot of fun special events to get the kids involved/interested in science.

In a city that should not offer activities for kids, one can say this is a place you must visit if a kid is traveling with you. A hands on museum, workshop activities as well as a very interesting store that would sell all kinds of interesting toys.

We kind of forgot how awesome the children's museum is because our kids are grown and moved out but boy we had a great time walking around showing the youngsters all the cool stuff there. Also, they have many new exhibits that... More
