Had a ball!

My wife & I took our 4 year old grandson to the Children's Museum. The three of us had a blast. He had been there before so he had some early favorites. But we looked at... read more

We were here visiting friends and thought this would be a great place to take all of our kids. We ended up not staying long because it was so overcrowded in each area, out kids couldn't even play. When the were able to do things there were many older children who were not being supervised, that we very rude and... More

We always visit here when our grandkids are in town. It's one of their favorite places to go. Sometimes they have new things to do, but the kids have their "old favorites" as well. Takes at least a couple of hours to visit. Our kids never want to leave. Great learning experiences, as well as just plain fun. All ages... More

Very interactive for all age groups. They spent a long time building structures for the ball shoot. And then just as long in the work shop area building items out of recycled materials. We then moved on to the bubbles with is entertaining even for adults. And don't forget the water playing exhibit. So much to do for a fun... More

We had a great time for a very reasonable price. Almost the same as the Boston children's museum we love. My son is 6 and it was perfect for him. The bubble room and rocket launchers were even fun for me. We will definitely go back!

There is a lot to do from water, fuel, air, painting and clay, bubbles, building, and climbing. We spent a little over 4 hours and felt like we could of stayed longer. Be mindful of the day you go as it can get crowded very quickly.

My wife & I took our 4 year old grandson to the Children's Museum. The three of us had a blast. He had been there before so he had some early favorites. But we looked at everything, touched everything that invited touching, and tried most of the activities. The museum is not brand new but I thought it was very... More

This is an awesome, hands on place for kids. The older children were busy building and using tools in the recycling section, the bubble room is incredible for all ages. The infant room was perfect for babies and toddlers to just explore. All our children from ages 1-10 had an awesome time and can't wait to come back.

Visited with my son. He had a blast! It was smaller than I expected but there was plenty to do. From an adult perspective, I wish there had been more options in the cafeteria, and there were a few out-of-order exhibits. It looked like the outdoor area was pretty cool, but we'll check that out in the summer.
