My wife and I have taken our children to many children's museums around the country. This is by far the smallest one we've been to. Really only 5 "areas" with stuff to do. The water play is just a couple tables that are filled up...More

When we visited our daughter and family, stopped by here with a membership card that was purchased by my daughter. Our grand daughter loves it here. The children get to apply face paints, there is an Astronaut space, a quiet little reading room with books,...More

Went there during my child's winter break. Arrived at 11am on a Tuesday, a little busy. For the price, I was a little disappointed. The place seems small. My son is 5 1/2, so he may be a little too old for this place. Thought...More

Location is very interesting inside a building and not really stroller accessible. Where you leave it in the hall way anyone can come by so don't leave belongings in a stroller but inside is great but I wouldn't leave your child unattended as they don't...More

My grandkids have loved coming here. If you plan to come often, or if there are several family members coming along, it is a good idea to look into a membership, as the entry fees can add up. There are some areas that remain nearly...More

Liked: super hands-on. Multiple rooms that hit on different stimuli. Loved that if you become a member (we did not) there is a toy-borrowing system. they have a whole "library" of toys and you may borrow up to 3 at a time. really, really cool...More

They have very limited open hours, so check before going. It is especially good with toddlers and up to about 8 years old. Lots of activities. People bring their own food and either eat in the tiny lunch room or out in the hall.

Went there with my 2-yr-old and 3-month-old a couple months ago. I love the products in the museum store--it's a one-stop shop for encouraging my toddler to learn through play. Every time I go to Habitot I walk away with something--that day with 5 items!...More
