This is a fabulous place for children. We took our grandchildren recently (ages 3 and 6) and they loved it! Many elementary school classes go there on field trips. Even though the place was full of children on a rainy Saturday, it never seemed crowded....More

My sister and I took the kids out for the day. The kids had so much fun. It was so much for all ages to do. We laughed and had a ball. I recommend to all parents with kids.

My son was 15 months old when we went. He loved it. From the play food to the basketball court to the water table he had a great time! I would definitely stop by if you are in the area!

My kids have gone there several times and always enjoyed it. Now that they are older and becoming tweens they didn't find nearly as fascinating as when they were younger.

We had a blast here. The kids were so excited and used a ton of energy. The big kids had a wonderful time playing too! Fun & educational - highly recommend it!

Lot of fun to go here with kids, or just by yourself. Gets very crowded on the weekends as you would imagine. Parking can be a little challenging but worth it.

My grandchildren love this museum-but I think the word museum is a bit misleading. There are dedicated spaces for pretend play and interactive play. Children are exposed to transportation (bus, boat, ambulance and other fun modes) along with veterinary, kitchen, animals-an unfortunate chicken named Nugget!...More

This museum is a great place for kids - I would refer to it as more of a gigantic play zone versus a museum, though. I would say it's best for those 12 and under. The price is right, there is inexpensive parking nearby. My...More
