Took my 3 year old grandson here while we were in town for an event. He had a blast, although some things he was too young for. Still there was plenty to keep him busy for several hours.

We went twice this month. Once for “the science of beer”’ an adult event with all shows and exhibits open. Second time with grandkids from Boston. Both were exceptional. This place both cool and informative. Lots of fun.
