This play area located within a public library branch is a delightful place for children. It's as good as most children's museums and it's free. Children can play on a train, built with blocks, assemble puzzles, put on a puppet show, or snuggle and read. Each area has appropriate books displayed to encourage literacy and play. Adults will be as... More

(This is actually a review for the Woodlawn location, which doesn't seem to have its own listing here.) My 4-year-old, 1-year-old and I visited Storyville for the first time last week and they had such a good time. My 4-year-old loved pretending to be a postman delivering letters to all of the houses on Storyville Lane, pretending to be a... More

This is a small childrens program, named "storyville" by people who haven't a CLUE. No relation to the famous red light district named for councilman Story, and finaly closed by order of the Navy during WW I . No music, no girls, and no history. At a bland suburban library. probably ok for ages 3-6

Various imagination-building play areas for kids, including one fenced area for babies. Very well done, and it's free. Be advised that only kids through age 5 are admitted.

Wonderful play area for babies and young kids. Several different play areas that work on different fundamental skills such as math, reading, building, puzzles and more. Baby specific play area with a ton of toys. Very diverse population with nice kids and loving parents on the day we visited. Very nice front desk staff. Open long hours and FREE!

I have only been to the Storyville in Woodlawn, at a different branch of the library. It is one of the most well-done attractions for young children I've ever visited. It is CLEAN. They have an AGE CAP (age 5), there are books everywhere and it isn't so big that it's overwhelming. And free? A complete miracle. I cannot recommend... More

This is surely the best place to take your preschooler too. It is designed so beautifully that you have your doubts how its free. Kids can spend hours in this place with a lil theatre for puppet shows, post office, library, kitchen, construction area,grocery store. This is just few among the many things available here. There is ample parking available.... More

This is probably my 2 year old's favorite place to go. It's a blast watching her play, pretend, abd run around the place. It's limited to under 5 years old, so you don't have to worry about older kids bullying the younger ones like they can at other family places. Definitely a great place.

This is an absolutely great time for any kid 5 and under. Really a must-do! The hands on activities are interesting and engaging. Kids can play mail man, build, play with a doll House, garden, cook, and more.
