Thank you so much for your review. We apologize for the lack of props. Kids tend to take the props all around the Museum to different areas as they play. Who doesn't love to take the baby doll into the airplane? Or deliver mail to...More

Kept our 3 year old busy the entire time. Lots of busy time for infants and up! We bought a year membership and plan on visiting more often.

We love it so much, we get passes despite being from Kansas City. Nice drive up, and we get half price at children's museums at other cities.

So much to explore and do! Science, art, drama, math and business made fun. They will forget they're learning! Take them while they're little!

This is a must do for children. The creativity and interesting things to do are myriad. Easily, you can spend all day. From the make up to the stage to the firetruck, to the pretend store, the list goes on. Wonderful treasure!
