“Charming, fun childrens museum”
Reviewed 17 December 2013

We enjoyed our stop here on our road trip. Our kids loved it. It is very small for a childrens museum but very charming and it had enough to keep us entertained. They have a great small supermarket, bank and many craft activities. We enjoyed the pirate boat out the front too. It was actually better than the other ones we have been to for our one year old. He didnt get overwhelmed at all

“Historical, Quaint, Fun”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

Toddlers and children, who like to play pretend with realistic toys, will have fun here. This is a place for people of all ages who appreciate the rare opportunity to immerse themselves in an authentic and quaint atmosphere while playing and learning about how it may have felt to live right there, day after day, many years ago. It's a great place to talk about how great-grandparents lived as children. It's a good place to nurture imagination.

This is a great place to use one's imagination. Kids can play grocery store, bank, or tea time in separate rooms for each to create a realistic atmosphere. The front room has stations for puppeteering, arts and crafts, two train and track sets, and some book sets. There is also an elaborate replica of the house with early 20th century decor. It happens to look very much like my grandmother's childhood home in Saint Augustine, FL. This is a place for adults who want to have fun with their kids in a warm and friendly atmosphere.

Outside there is a pirate ship and a fort that kids really seem to enjoy a lot!

Their calendar of events offers quite a variety of activities for families with children.

My girlfriends and I took the kids to the museum today. The ladies at the front desk were an absolute pleasure and there was so much for the kids to do! I will be back again...

“Small but very nice”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

The museum is quaint like a small cottage with many rooms for children to play in. They get to dress up and every room has a theme. Very nice for small children 1-5 yrs old max.

“A favorite. Considering a membership!”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

In this age of ubiquitous electronics, it is great for children to have a place to play with all kinds of old-fashioned actual toys. My 6-year old and 11-year old love to go there and make a puppet show, play tellers at the bank, and especially shop or "work" at the grocery store. Perhaps, as the other reviewer said, the pirate boat needs a few repairs but it's not so bad that kids aren't safe on it. The staff was friendly, even if the place was full.
