Fun to watch the kids just explore this place. Lots of interactive things, really gets the imagination going. Even things that will interest an adult, but more fun watching the kids minds work out the stuff.

We went with our 4 kids. Ages 1-9. Wasn't much to do for 9 year old. However, the other kids had a great time! Awesome hands on activities.
