It offers everything you would want for children of all ages. The outside playgrounds are sized for the age of the child, Basket Ball,Soccer,etc. The inside requires 4 plus hours to do it all.

Small museum but full of fun imaginative activities for younger kids. My eight year old got bored pretty quickly though. I thought the prices was high for size of museum. Fountain outside at public park was also fun for kids to cool off in.
