“My kids LOVE this place!”
Reviewed 29 October 2006

Whenever we are passing through Salem, we always stop here. My kids just love it (even our teenage son!) - they have such fun exploring all the rooms and exhibits. An excellent way to spend a rainy day. The extensive wooden outdoor playground is great for kids too.
