My kids had a great time. It does get a bit crowded especially during the weekends or school vacations.

The good:

My 2 and 4 year old had fun.

The bad: It is not a museum. It is a open area, one room.... where kids can play with a bunch of stuff. It looked like a big daycare room with toys and stations to play.

Neat for local people, rainy days, low key days... But not worth a big trip, or getting all excited about.

Nothing was wrong with this museum; it just did not offer enough for the children I took. The children I took like to be active with outdoor games (hiking, swimming, etc.) or with their electronic toys, so they were hard to please. Kudos to the folks working to build up a children's museum.

It was advertised as a "museum". It was really more of an open play area. The kids had a great time as they did like playing with the toys. We had a hard time finding it as we didn't expect it to be in a little strip mall tucked in behind another strip mall. Many of the toys were dingy and needed a good cleaning. Many of the exhibits (school bus, trains, computers) were broken. Despite all that, it was a good place to let the kids play for a couple of hours.

What a great place for kids to play! Back in June I brought a school group with kids ages 3-10. The 9 and 10 year olds were skeptical. Some went in with a bad attitude. We told the kids they had the power to make their day bad or good. Of course, it was a longer conversation than those words, but that was the gist. After some mumbles and grumbles, everyone was smiling, laughing, and having fun. This place has different stations set up-- drama, restaurant, bank, store, construction, art, music, tree, etc... Kids can freely play at the stations using their imaginations to take them where they want to go. I even played with the kids. We stayed about 2 hours and that was plenty of time for everyone. I look forward to going again! The place was geared for pre k-2, but even our fourth graders had fun. It was all about tapping into your imagination and having a good attitude--something we all need. The volunteers were super too!!!!
