This place needs a major cleaning and makeover. It is rather boring and the staff is not very friendly.

Decided to take our 5 1/2 year old grandson there for awhile. Definitely not worth it. Half the things didnt make noise, no costumes for dress up as specified. He was bored within minutes. Dont waste your time or money.

Nice option for toddlers - those 5 and under. Would not say it is terribly educational, but is great fun and allows little ones the opportunity to use their imaginations. Nice size museum and easy to allow children to roam without being with them every moment.

We had a great time in 2014 and went back on our visit during 2016. Our family painted a tile for the ceiling and it was fun finding it; overall, a great visit and revisit for smaller children.

In addition to free play, there are scheduled experiments every hour or so where a staff person leads a group of children in an activity. Our kids had... More

We went with our 3 year old and she had tons of fun. She enjoyed the farmers market, the dino dig, lego area and the pizza delivery truck the most. There were different stations that she enjoyed and let her learn through play. Get the monster coupon book and get $3 off per person.

This museum is small, but has enough activities to keep little ones (5 and under) busy for a couple of hours. They have added some new activities since we were there a couple of years ago. My nephew really liked the supermarket checkout and constructing with the big Lego blocks. There is also an ambulance, pizza delivery truck and a... More

We have a 2-year-old and this was a great activity for her to do. It's hands on and she loved it. If you keep your pass, you can use it at the jump park right next door.

Small and not very "up-to date". Might be fun for small children. Probably good for a one time visit.
