It's better for kids around 7-10 yrs of age. Great way to get out of the sun. They have a variety of new things every month so check to see what's new when you get here!

Very expensive to get in this place for what it is. Its great for little kids 5 and under for the interactive exhibits. Kids that are older then that will get bored.

Great exhibits. Great location. Sometimes the individual items are not in repair. My kids always loved a day here. Great fun is the still motion camera set up where you can maneuver little toys to make a short video!
