Got a season pass for the family as a gift. Only went a handful of times because not much changes. Great place but would like to see new things added each month. Not asking a lot... Just something.

An imaginative, unique children's play space. While some are turned off by its non-academic nature, I think it is really important for kids to have a place to play- especially when it's cold out. My favorite big room is the medieval castle and village. My...More

This is a fantastic location to bring younger children to play, explore, and discover. Behind every little nook is a new surprise that allows their imagination take flight.
