2 boys (age 4&5) had a great time! Husband and I were thinking that it would wear out the kids but it was exhausting following them! They loved it all, very happy that Thomas the Train was there too! Definitely recommend!

Excellent children's museum. The kids can have fun and learn about Mississippi at the same time. There are slides, puzzles, water play, and milking a cow to name a few things available. Probably best suited for smaller, preteen kids. Also, there's usually an exhibit upstairs...More
