Overview

Don't take the name so literally. We're about fun. Not your white walls, walk around, and be quiet museum. If you want to climb around, get active with your kids or are a big kid at heart, we're the place. If you get freaked out easily, you might not want to come. We're four floors filled with miles of tunnels, a full cave system, over 30 slides, a circus, an arts area, a large outdoor climbing space, Architectural Museum, a Cabin that serves adult beverages, a Museum of Mayhem, Mirth and Mystery, and a ton more. Also, there's the roof with a Ferris Wheel and a bus hanging off its edge.

This is a a special type of museum. It can be enjoyed with families or a great place for date night. It’s very interactive and physical.

One of the most unique museums/playgrounds I have ever seen. It’s nearly impossible to adequately describe this place. I took my 3 year old daughter, who was almost too young to be there but who enjoyed it. I would recommend everybody visit whether they have...More
