I was incredibly amazed by the City Museum. Extraordinarily creative adventure through tree houses, slides, cages, caves and sea creatures. I’ve never seen anything quite like it nor do I know how to describe it. Kids will love it more than a theme park, so...More

Not knowing what to expect this place blows your socks off. We went with extended family of probably 30+ people with little kids. Fun for everyone. Be ready for a workout.

This was our third trip to the city museum. Our kids (9&11) always have a huge ball of fun here. There’s so much to do and explore.

Well worth the price of admission!!! Allow yourself plenty of time. You do need to be agile to fully enjoy and explore all that there is to offer here.

This was the most fun I have ever had at a museum. Hands down. I will be going quite a few more times over the next few years of visits! We may even let the kids tag along next time! Haha

Please don't. As much as you love your dog, other people don't. Would you want someone who loves their small pet snake to bring it in? Rat? Chicken? Where do you draw the line? Service animals - yes. Pets, stay home.

Not really. I mean there are elevators but as far as getting into the caves etc those are all stairs to get up there. Depending on when you go, we went on a Friday evening after 5 and it was so crowded it would be hard to... More
