This place has something for all aged children, probably most for ages 2 to 14. It is very interesting and very well organized. It is pretty crowded at times and fairly noisy. Really a lot of fun for my 4 year old granddaughter.

My kids loved coming here. Make sure you arrive first thing in the morning because it gets very busy! Every room was full of engaging activities. I would say this museum caters best to age 3 to 10.
