My kids are 8 and 10 and this about the max. age. It is very interesting, but you cannot spend more than one hour. But it is perfect for a hot day, some intelligent distraction.More

Thank you for your review and we are glad you like the park. In terms of the Explorium, what we have available during the summer is around half the size of our normal exhibit space. We close one full room of exhibits to make room...More

Our kids love this! They can stay there for hours playing with the gadgets. It's great for a hot summer day or a rainy day. Plus it's free or donations are accepted

A wonderful park setting with lots for young children (ages 3 - 12) to do - and only with a suggestion donation! The place was perfect for our needs (children ages 3 and 5).

I took my grandson there for a day out and we enjoyed our time. He is 3 years old and, though he's not old enough to understand the concepts yet, he enjoyed the hands-on aspect of the museum.
