Not very big but a lot for the kids to do. It is cute and will keep them busy for awhile. There are two levels so don't miss the upstairs.

This place is great! It is not much to look at on the outside, just a hole in the wall in historic downtown. But you are immediately taken away from any normalcy once you enter. Whether you are distracted by the miniature (nearly fully functional)...More
