Had slight sticker shock at the admission price but as soon as you get in it's totally worth it. Great interactive exhibits. The bubbles were our favorite.

Such a great place for smaller children. I wish this place existed when I was young. I took my teenage son and he just stood and watched the kids play like i did. So it's definitely not a place for older kids. Maybe 10 and under is good.

This was a great experience to share with my son, age 6. It is fun to watch them learn and play. A great climbing area, water exploration, magnets, vacuums, role playing, and the most fun: paper airplane construction and test center!!

We were tasked with watching our 2 year old grandson one Saturday. We researched and came across this museum. What a terrific place to spend the day and keep a 2 year old involved. Couldn't hardly get him out of the bubble room!

We came in on Friday which was a free day. So glad we had to opportunity to bring our grandson. He had such a great time and didn't want to leave. We are now going to buy a membership.

Our kids loved it! The facility itself isn't the best children's museum we've visited, but there are lots of activities to keep kids enjoying themselves and having fun!

If you have children of any ages, this is a must do! Hours of entertainment and much to learn. Great for adults also - never too old to stop learning!

Took our 3 yo granddaughter for the day. Many different displays, all hands on with pint size fireman coats, lab coats, vet coats, water jackets and painting smock. This was a warm October and she was able to play in the water which we didn't know they had. She got soaked but at 89 degrees who cared. This is a... More
