Great Explorations Museum, Carrabas Italian Restaurant and Sunken Gardens are right next door to each other. This is a trifecta of entertainment for someone over 5.

This is a wonderful place to rake young kids. They have all kinds of things for entertainment. My 3 grandchildren ages 2, 4, and 6 loved it.

I took my "Grands" to Great Explorations twice. The first time was loved by both; the second time, my granddaughter was older, and did not care for it as much. There are many hands on activities, but aimed at a 4-5 year old.

The kids had a great time exploring at my granddaughters birthday party. They have a seperate room to rent that is included in the price (per child). You can even bring your own food in. Kids just loved it.
