What fantastic interactive, creative, and well planned museum! Starting with the bubble table downstairs to the restaurant and career field exploration, this place has something for everyone. At $10.00/head for hours of learning and fun, this should be on everyone's to do list!

My three and five year old had a great time at this museum! There were lots of interesting activities, and plenty of manipulatives for lots of hands on play. They really enjoyed the blue foam building blocks, the grocery store, and the Port Orleans area....More

Great museum! Fun for the little one and good AC which is needed in the summer. Lots of good exhibits including a train track room for the little engineer. Great for a kids day.
