I went with my daughter and three grand kids, ages 2 years, 7 years and 11 years. All three kids loved the different things to try.

We enjoy visiting Quaint Corner. The exhibits on the second floor offer learning opportunities as well as an art studio room, while the third floor has areas for imaginative play (store, trains, vet clinic). The basement has a pirate ship and lots of sand.

The place is in neat of cleaning. Odd construction at the steps. Bathroom has a door for part of the wall and you can hear everything. The basement had an odd smell. This place was a major disappointment.

My young adult friend and I used to like to go here. It was very interesting seeing actual Victorian bedroom suite and how it was smaller because people were shorter.

My kids are getting to old for this now but they LOVED going here with their grandma. Would spend an entire day if you let them and then want to back the next day. Kid loved, parent approved.
