“Different perspective!”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Huge catfish through the roof! Also displays of other river information, local industry, power generation. Hands-on activities such as rudimentary carpentry, arts and crafts, even a floor keyboard played by walking on it. Kids love it.

“Children's Play”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

Weary parents traveling with young children can find a respite from the road by taking their children through this museum made just for them. Gardens abound and playgrounds are nearby. A place to let the kids run loose for a bit and wear themselves out.

“Great place for children”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

This is a fun, hands-on, place for younger children. Check out Deibert Park while you're there. My children have spent hours there. It's always a great place to go on a rainy day.
