Spent $12 per person (only complaint honestly is that they charge for adults in addition to children). However, there are five rooms on one side and two on the other. Exhibits were so great I had to coax my 6 yr old to explore more....More

Small but a lot of fun with small children. Lots of hands on activity, great place to chill out in the summer.

Perfect place for children under 10! An arts and crafts area for creativity. Painting smocks are available to protect clothing, though we took some paint home on our clothes. 😏 A medieval "castle" allows for running and imaginary play. Stick horses are free to explore...More

It's not the biggest children's museum, but it has a lot of really great things for the kids to do that are unique to it. Also, the craft room is great, and the section outside makes it even nicer. The water table section was also...More

What a nice place to entertain your kids! We didn't have enough time to spend there, but that hour we spent there was very nice. Our son loved that place. It has different environments even a simulated supermarket. We will return for sure.

Our children love these types of museums, but it cost $60 for the five of us to get in. They even charged for our 13-month-old. Way too expensive. Then my wife bought a bottle of water and it was $2.56! Overpriced - won't go back

In my opinion, it is geared towards younger kids. I went with three last year - ages 9, 8 & 6. The 6 year old loved it. The 8 year old was mildly interested. The 9 year old, not so much. Most things were below his height... More
