This is a wonderful place to go for fun with the grandkids. I booked reservations for the gingerbread house construction and we also toured the entire museum throughout the morning. The grandkids loved the book reading of the Polar Express and all of the activity stations. We got some great photos. The gingerbread house activity was well worth the cost.... More

I love taking my 3yo here. He gets a chance to run around and play with other kids. They have a wonderful outside area for kids. They also have a water pad when the weather is warm. Lots of special exhibits about different things that keep him interested for hours!
