Owner description: An interactive museum with hands-on exhibits allows children to explore and learn.
Reviewed 24 March 2016

From the moment you walk in, there are interactive exhibits for everyone to participate in. We have had every age group from three years to 64 going through this museum. So many things to see and do and build and play and amaze. There is something to challenge the minds and creativity of every age group here. Housed within two buildings, you hear laughter, you see families working together on projects, you hear the delight of children and adults as they solve, create, play, pretend, build...so much interaction for the imagination! This is a "must see" attraction for children of every age. Don't forget to stop by the gift shop before you leave. So many fun things in there for children to bring back as mementos of their visit.

For all ages, but interesting games and scientific projects geared to the young. An area where you can even play ball, children love it.

This has been our second visit. We visited a year ago and loved it so we decided to come back. They changed the exhibits from last time which was nice that it wasn't all the same. They have something for everyone ( yes even adults) we spent 3 hours There and could have spent all day. Some of my favourite things are the mini grocery store and pizzeria, mini vet clinic, archeology Center, small wind tunnel, and rope maze thing. There is so much more we liked. Can't say enough good things about this place. The staff and volunteers were so helpful and friendly.

we had the occassion to be invited to a special program at the museum called chagall for kids. it was a fabulous interactive program and all the adults had a great time trying to be interactive with the painitngs. an example: you could take a photo of yourself as the greene violinist, one of chagalls famous painints, and then your face would appear in the painting and you could color the face any color you wanted. the faous rooster apinting ws another delightl there was fabric and fake fur and feathers attached to velcro and you could design any tail you wanted for the rooster. the same for a stained galss window you could recreate the painting by placing glass panelsi in the right order or design your own, it is a great interactive educational and fun progam the museum has brought for the kis to become acquainted with great art. i would absolutely make this museum a stop on my way to the desert.

Every time we visit the desert, we like to VRBO in a townhouse, we come here. Our last visit was in February with two seven year olds and a five year old. There are many changes since our visit one year ago and we had our best time ever. All of the exhibits are hands-on and the children can use their imagination to run a pizza restaurant, or shop at the grocery store or make art.

We found the two new buildings very impressive (yes everything is indoors with A/C). The center building had some very cool displays and hands-on fun. The third building is dedicated to traveling exhibits and it had wonderful interactive Chagall exhibit when we were there.
