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...more

Many stations/activities for kids. Some supervision is appropriate, particularly with smaller children, as there are some apparatus where a small child may need some help. Interesting environment, even pretty good refreshments. Unique.

This place is crazy! My family went to the City Museum and we had a wonderful time. Even though it was very cold outside, we needed shorts, t-shirts and tennis shoes to really enjoy everything. It is definitely something to see!

Please don't. As much as you love your dog, other people don't. Would you want someone who loves their small pet snake to bring it in? Rat? Chicken? Where do you draw the line? Service animals - yes. Pets, stay home.
