As grandparents from Orland we thought it would be so much fun to bring our grandson a year and a half to the museum. Checked on the website and they were supposed to be open. But they were closed when we got there. Another group...More

It’s a pretty small museum but my daughter loved it. The exhibits are just ok. I’ve seen better before at other museums. The employees are not very friendly. They could be much better. Put more into improving the museum. It has potential.

This is a lot of fun for younger children. Just took our 3 and 5 year old grandchildren. There is a wide variety of interesting stations for learning and playing. My favorite is the dark room where they can write on the walls with light...More

Visited on a week day. Not too crowded. My granddaughter is a preschooler and she loved it! Probably best for those under 7. Lots of areas for imaginative play. She loved fishing in the boat and shopping and using the cash register the best! Would...More

We went on a preschool field trip for my son's class. Very nice, clean place. More suitable for younger kids. Beautiful park and play ground right outside.

Nice small museum. Probably not suited for children over 10 but plenty to do for those younger. Took our twins for their first birthday. Very nice and friendly staff.

This is a great place for kids. I took my 18 month old grandson to the museum and he did not want to leave. He loved the train set up, the kitchen set up with the play food items, the slide and so much more.

We have belonged to the museum for several years. Our grandchildren call it the "play place", but it is educational AND fun. It can be booked for birthday parties or other events, but as a drop-in fun place to spent awhile with the young ones...More

We caved and bought the year membership and have DEFINITELY gotten our money's worth! Our kids are 4 and 6 and love going there. It has two floors and while not every area is super duper, the overall experience is great. They always seem to...More

It's been a while since I took the kids here, but yesterday I stopped to take a peek in. It was a terrific place several years ago, and it looks twice as good now. They're very organized, with very attractive play stations and quality equipment....More
