“One of the better small children's museums”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

They have exhibits and games for kids from 2 to 12 and are always relaxed about how long you stay. Coming and returning on the same day is something we have often done, especially when out grandchildren were young. There is both indoor and outdoor space.

“Stuck With The Kids? This is a great place.”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

Don't know what to do with the kids? Although its a little pricey if you don't have a membership, this is a great place to take little ones in the 4-6 year old range, especially if they are visiting from out of town and everything will seem new. Some of the exhibits when I visited were looking a little worse for wear. Hopefully there has been a chance for refurbishment, next time I (have to) visit.

“Very cool experience!”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

We went on a special day where all the characters from Shrek the musical were there. The kids had a blast. There were musical performances, interactive games and crafts, and all the other fun things that are there on an everyday basis. There wasn't a dull moment. There was also a very cute dress up section that was great for fun pictures and the kids enjoyed playing on the stage in their costumes. This is a great place :)

“Excellent for kids”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

I teach preschool and this was a wonderful field trip for my students. Lots to explore, touch, climb and do here. Easy access for parking and small admission fee. Ages 2-11 would enjoy this.

“My son loved it!”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

Reasonable admission, and was offered a discount for checking in on Facebook. Admission can be applied to an annual membership which is also reasonable. Lots of arts, crafts, dress up, role play type of activites. The employees were great with all the kids. Very educational and fun place to visit.
