Wonderful place to visit! Older kids such as teenagers won’t enjoy as much but a must for someone with smaller kids! A definite visit especially on those hot summer days!

Although the place seems small but there is SO much to do and see. My son had a lot of time in the Wonder Works as well as role-playing.

Spent the day with the daughter and family with three kids, one 6, 4, and 9 months. No one complained about being bored! As a matter of fact we had to literally drag everyone out at closing time. Reasonable prices for all to be entertained....More

This is a wonderful educational stuff for a family with children. There are four floors of activities. We spent the whole day climbing and playing and learning, which can be a rarity for small children.

Unfortunately after being at the magic house for about three minutes. The window to the dinosaur train fell in and landed on my son's face. Definitely going to have a black eye and brushed cheekbone.
