Was there with grandchildren who are 2 and 4. The museum is very hands on, with a nice variety of exhibits to explore. While technology is very basic we had a good 2-3 hours of fun

Visited with our grandchildren and it was a wicked awesome experience! The hands on approach to this museum was a very interesting, entertaining educationally visit! Four stars from two retired teachers!

We had planned on going to Strawbery Banke but it was pouring rain. I found this on TripAdvisor and changed plans. We had so much fun. Our kids loved it there. It turned out to be a great rainy day.

Hi Jeanne, while the majority of our visitors are younger, between the ages of six months to 8 years, a lot of older kids do find our exhibits fun. There's a lot of fun technology used in many of our exhibits, and the Muse... More
