My 2 kids (2 and 6) and my sister's kids (8 and 12) all enjoyed themselves. It felt clean enough. Food choices could be expanded and gift shop prices a bit ridiculous. Kids loved the train ride and slide.

Would not visit again. A family of 5 spent almost 150USD on mediocre attraction. Its completely commercial. Definitely not worth the money.

Place is huge with lots of things for multiple age levels though above 10 or so might be a stretch. Can easily spend a whole day here. Does get crowded and seems to have a parking lot that is a bit smaller than they need....More

WOW! This place goes on and on. You can easily spend the better part of a day engaging in all the fun and activities this museum has to offer. Cannot wait to return after the expansion which will double the size of the museum.

Great place to spend the day with your kiddos - so many things to see and play with... I don't even think we have seen it all. Highly recommend a membership if you see yourself going multiple times a year!

Yes there are tons of stuff for a 2 year old to do. They will be so busy. There are areas throughout the museum. Have fun and be prepared to run around chasing them as there is so much to explore.
