This museum is fantastic to spend hours with the kids. We went with a 1, 5 and 7 year old and everybody had a great time! There are different areas geared to different skill levels. Great for the family!

It is a really cool place with lots of interactive activities for the kids. Love the creativity and the children being allowed make messes in the painting room, play in the little river, go up light up stairs, just so many fun activities.

We wandered in with only an hour before closing (and they even gave us a discount!). My two grandsons had a total blast. The weather was lousy but inside the square was comfortable, interesting and entertaining.

Interactive education and great fun for children of all ages! Took our 14-month old granddaughter when in town to visit and she loved it. It will be a must-do location every time she's here!

Four floors of activities for kids. A zip line. a tunnel which runs on all floors. A room you can paint on the walls. This place was awesome. Our niece loved it. This is the best one we've taken her too.

I would wait a few months. An 8 mo old would probably enjoy the outdoors or animals more than this learning environment.
