Lots to see and do, you could easily spend a whole day here with the kids. Actually, I think I could amuse myself there all day.

My 11 and 8 year old grandsons loved this interactive museum. Spent 2 hours at The Museum enjoying hands-on activities. Don't miss the star show! Pack snacks or lunch!

Oh dear. What can I say. A lot of empty space. Not a museum at all - some kiddie interactive games but sure not worth the cost of entry. Save your money and time. Don’t bother.More

This fun downtown museum has something for everyone. When I visited, there was a show put together by local refugees and high school students, a travelling exhibit about cryptocurrency, and loads of fun activities for kids and adults alike.

Visited with a 10 and 13 year old. Everyone found something interesting, including the parents, who enjoyed the display of 'old' computer tech. The kids enjoyed playing the original games - Space invaders, Pong, etc. We also enjoyed the interactive art exhibit.
