Our kids loved this place. They didn't want to leave! They enjoyed everything this place had, especially the kitchens & grocery sections. It was our first time as a family there, my kids had already been there with their schools long ago.

Similar to the children's museum in San Antonio but smaller, there are enough things to do to keep the kids amused for hours. Best of all most is inside with AC. There is a separate costume museum next door for adults

Took my children here last year and they had a great time. It is not very crowded during the week and the staff are fantastic. They can have fun for a few hours and there are many hands on activities for them to enjoy.

This was not a place for our family. It just seemed like a big indoor play area. Fortunately, we noticed what it was before we paid, so we didn't even go in.

Wonderful place where children can learn and play. I took my nieces and nephews and they loved it. Age ranges 1-6. It's a great museum and staff are very helpful.
