We took our 7-year-old granddaughter to the museum as part of an experience birthday. After 1 1/2 hours we had to drag her away. There were so many things to do and see that she didn't want to leave.

I was very impressed with this museum. It provided at least a couple of hours of fun for our five year old. I especially loved going inside books with the life size recreations. The price seemed fair. It was much nicer and bigger than other...More
