This is a top-notch experience for any age. The models, hands-on stations for kids, docents - all are wonderful. Not too big that it is overwhelming. Very nice people. FREE Lego sets are given away for completing a scavenger hunt! No Kidding!

I do not remember seeing any strollers available for rent. I would recommend giving them a call to be sure!
