Made our first visit with our 3 grandchildren visiting from Delaware. The 3 year old twins LOVED it and our 11 year old enjoyed herself. Plenty of interactive exhibits that give children a look into other cultures, life in bygone days as well as some...More

My 7 year old felt a little old for most of the activities. The staff couldn’t be less interested in working there. Not a super great feeling there. The representations for other countries were just dam creepy. See picture below

This is a fairly low tech hands on play space. Our grandchildren loved it from age 16 months to 5 yes. Let's them use their imaginations, fine and gross motor skills in a safe space. Plenty of seats for grandma.

The museum is small over priced and not worth it. Alot of prices were broken or out of service. The multicultural exhibits are outdated and borderline racist.

I think this place is great for kids and families. I missed places like this when our family moved to western NYS from Mass. Which was very family oriented with things to do. So. Greatly appreciated this museum.

Very disappointed. $7 per person. Free only for 1 and under. Grandparents came with us when I took my 1.5 year old son. We spend $28 for nothing. The museum was too small, had a cheap feeling, a lot of materials were missing or broken....More
