We love this museum and when it's hot outside the outdoor water area is perfect for kids. This place is good for kids and adults of all ages and always has something new and fun going on to keep guests engaged.

I've taken my granddaughter a few times. There is a safe and wonderful area for the little ones (crawling and walking) to explore and learn. Lots of activities for all kids. Try to get there on week days when it is less crowded.
