My little ones have visited this place for school and we ventured there for them to show us around. Great place but needs more advertisements and marketing for the local area.

Great place to take the kids! Plenty to learn in this hidden jewel. Check for hours because they open at 1:00 most days.

Nice little indoor place for kids to play. Definitely more for 2.5 - 4 year olds. The water table seems to be a favorite activity for most kids that go. They also have a cute little outdoor space in the back.
