“Tons of fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

I brought a 4 and 7 year old here to entertain them for a couple of hours. Both boys had a wonderful time exploring the exhibits! The favorite of both was the "Construction Zone."
My only suggestion is that I wish there was some seating near the exhibits for parents to sit while observing their children. My only complaint was that I wish we had made more time in our day to enjoy this museum.

“SO fun. The Food is good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

It is so fun!!! I mess playing on it now that I'm moving. I love the BI-LO shopping center but some kids like to hog things. the food is good too. I recommend going there and eating lunch in the café. the chicken wrap is really good.
