I brought my younger siblings here and they loved it. Lots of gadgets and gismos to keep them entertained. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone over the age of ten. It starts to drag at that point.

I️ love the idea of this museum but the exhibits feel old and the opportunities to really learn are replaced by the children running around the space without any real thought or care. That being said the kids had a good time.

We enjoyed our visit! It had some nice things to offer. Not too big but big enough. I recommend it if you have young children.

Try the Washington/4th structure first choice or Ann/Ashley next they are a short walk; and the kids can alway use more exercise. .and "build up" the excitement about the museum.

Absolutely. It is a great place for 2-7 years old and you will find yourself returning for more.
