Let your kids explore. Parents wear light clothes as you will be chasing your child all over the museum. There is sooo much to see and do that your child will not know where to begin. Definitely a fun day...Will go back

Great place to bring the little ones for an interactive experience. Watch out for the hours because I have seen some discrepancies on line with actual hours. It will definitely give you a few hours of entertainment wit the kids.

Took grand children to this place. They had a blast. It is a little worn down from years of service but still a great place to have a B day or just spend the day.
