Great place to take young children in elementary school kids. Very interactive activities for little hands to keep them active in their minds engaged

The kids had a blast with all the items to do. However it was not very organized and most of the paper/pencils/color crayons where missing from the areas that needed it for the activity. Thankfully I always have those items in my purse.

Took our granddaughters (Ages 7, 5, and 2) to the museum after school. They loved all the interactive activities. Hi-lights: The 7-year old loved building something with hammer and saw. The five year old organized everything in sight (grocery store and restaurant), and the two...More

A must see for anyone with children or grandchildren. The kids are allowed to handle exhibits and build exciting things in the think shop.

Great kid friendly to spend half of a day. They have a small section for kids up to 5 as well as lots of toys and areas for kids older. If it is nice outside they even have a playground available in an enclosed area....More

I took my 19-month old grandson here last week. I wondered if he might be too young for the activities but he loved it. There was plenty for him to do as well as activities that are more appropriate for older children. He didn't want...More

I do not believe that they have food either. I've been there a few times and we have never noticed it if they did! However, they have a wonderful outdoor area and you can bring a picnic lunch with you.
