The museum is small and nestled in a strip mall. Very clean there is much to do for tots; however my seven year old didn't find it that interesting because of his age. Recommended for kids maybe up to 5-6. Price is very fair.

We had a 3+ year old with us and he had a lot of fun. Lots of activities, all indoors. Many places for creative play too. Price is not too bad. We'll visit there again.

Wonderful place to take children for the afternoon. Many different areas for children to explore and use their imagination. They also host parties and special classes. Purchased a membership for my grandson and family.
