I have never visited a children's museum before, but this was a great first time experience. The museum is very hands on and it encourages the children to explore their imagination by climbing in and out the police squad cars, fire trucks, and airplanes.

Hi Stephanie, Thank you very much for your great review! We work very hard to offer positive hands-on learning experiences for children of all ages, and we’re happy to see that reflected on your last visit.

This was a great children’s museum. Tons of interactive centers. And it’s set up in a huge circle, so I felt comfortable letting my older kids go on their own for a little while. The best was the small child area in the middle, probably...More
