I don't have kids myself but when I was a nanny I would always bring the kids here. They have tons of crafts, sensory rooms and fun things to do. And the best part.... It is free. Highly recommend!

I love Kaleidoscope. I went here as a kid and now in my 30's, I volunteer here in the summers. The people at Kaleidescope truly want a magnificent experience for every child that walks through their doors. The decor is bright, engaging and kid-approved. This...More

This place was amazing for little kids. Our group, however, was a little too old. It was a field trip for school and the older kids get bored a little quicker with this. But I think it is a really neat place especially for preschool...More

My granddaughter and I have a special day each week. Given the choice, she would choose Kaleidoscope every time. She loves all the artwork possibilities.

This attraction appealed more to my special needs 15 year old son, then it did my 12 year old daughter. It is more for the elementary school age child, or for someone who has a child with special needs such as ADHD.

This is so much fun it is sad to say my kids are starting to get too old for it and they are 10 and 11. This is free and your kids will love just looking at stuff let alone making things.

A terrific and free 40 minutes of fun for kids and families. Drawing, painting, crafting, and more is what is waiting for you. My kids favorite was the melted crayon area and the jigsaw puzzle creator.

Kids love this place. Wish they offered more time for kids to create stuff but can't complain when it's free. SUPER cute and full of stations to make crafts. Boys and girls would love this.

Visited with a 10 and 7 year old while passing through town on vacation. Kaleidoscope is really best suited for preschool age as it's a 40 minute free form parent directed craft session with markers,paints and cut out papers. Would be best for locals looking...More

Yes, it is first come, first serve. There is no entry fee. I think they run it by sessions...in other words I think you can get in line and get in 2 or 3 different times each day. (We got there before 9:00 a.m. and just... More
