The museum is fun for children which is the most important but it needs some updates. Some of the rooms are unique and interesting but others need to be completely renovated. Not a must see attraction.

Although small, lots of things for young kids to do. However, needs updating (example: Velcro wouldn't stick in farm). Nice outdoor area. Train for kids to ride for additional cost. Our 3 year old son enjoyed it

My kids enjoy this place. There is lots to do and we can spend a few hours here easily. Hands on items and during the summer months a train ride! Also has picnic tables and a play area.

There is so much packed in this little building--lots of nooks and crannies and activities. I've been here twice with my nieces/nephews (under 7) and there's always tons to keep them entertained.
