We had an enjoyable day at the museum. The exhibits were nicely designed and appropriate for you children. It's a good way to spend a few hours with the kids. They could use a few more staff helping out with the interactive exhibits, but all...More

This museum is great for young children has just enough exhibits to keep them interested and worth the museum pass. It also gives you discounts to other museums. Some people think they need to visit museums for hours but it's actually the opposite. Especially in...More

Lots to do here for kids between 2-12, although it seems geared for the younger ones. Nothing really fancy, just lots of different things to try- bubble area, tool area, number area, big play area for younger kids with market, slide, motorcycle, train, etc. Bring...More

Many hands-on exhibits for younger children. For older teens not so much. Someone else mentioned that this is better for children over five and I have to agree. Children between 6 and 11 are the most appropriate and will get the most from the learning...More

Thank you for sharing your thoughts! We agree, there are wonderful learning experiences for elementary school-aged children.

There are many activities for the children that are hands on and the kids do not run out of things to do. The parents can enjoy the activities with the kids in a very safe atmosphere. Great experience for all.

I have to say I was excited to go to this Museum. Price is about 13$ a person. There are two floors. Maybe about two hours and you're done. Not much to do the bus area was closed for a party so no entry. The...More
