My child had enjoyed himself. I was better when he was smaller and easier to follow. Just choose off peak times

Took our 1 1/2 year old grandson here and he loved it! Wasn't sure how long he would be occupied, but he endured for 3 1/2 hours.

There are many interactive rooms for the kids to explore. I took a 6 and 7 year old. You may have to wait to get into the play whole food store but once in it is a good experience for them

Good place to take the kids on a bad weather day. Most can find one or more exhibits to amuse them. My grandchildren spent 3 hours just making a fort with the large soft building blocks
