My kid just loved this place, we arrived at opening hours and left when they closed, once a week they have story telling and a guided activity for kids. It's not a really big place but kids enjoy wearing costumes, playing with the trains, on...More

I take my grandkids here every time they visit. The name should not be "Museum," as it is really a play house. When kids enter they can run around without anyone telling them to stop. There are kitchen areas, dress-up room, trains to build and...More

Our four year-old loves it! Plenty of stuff to do and play with and a very friendly staff. Also, as far as Children;s Museum's go it's pretty cheap and a great way to spend morning or afternoon.

This small facility has plenty to do. With other young children around, lots of creativity came out, too. However, although it is advertised for kids 3-6, a large group of apparently older kids came in for an hour or so midday. It was uncomfortable so...More
