Great exhibits and activities for all age groups. Very friendly staff on hand to assist or answer any questions. Some weekends can get pretty busy, but there is never a feeling of being overcrowded.

We thought a three-year-old would enjoy the museum, but the big surprise was how much fun the Magic House is for adults. The interactive areas are just so well done!

The website doesn’t do it justice. I wasn’t excited to come here with my kiddos (5 and 9). But, wow! We spent about 4 hours here and could have spent more. There is something for all ages. Kids especially loved the bubble room, make believe...More

This is a great place for kids. They have a static electricity ball you can put your hand on and your hair will stand up . I did this with long and the picture wasn't that great.

Spent several hours here with an 8 yr-old girl. She enjoyed several areas, especially the "village" area with grocery store, bank, vet, & more. A fun & educational experience.

About $10 a person, my 18 month old loved it. We will definitely come back again. There are a lot of different things to do.

I'd say a couple of hours to all day. There's a lot of creative activities and open play opportunities, so most kids won't get bored, which leaves it up to how long the grown ups are willing to give it!
