My 7 year old felt a little old for most of the activities. The staff couldn’t be less interested in working there. Not a super great feeling there. The representations for other countries were just dam creepy. See picture below

This is a fairly low tech hands on play space. Our grandchildren loved it from age 16 months to 5 yes. Let's them use their imaginations, fine and gross motor skills in a safe space. Plenty of seats for grandma.

The museum is small over priced and not worth it. Alot of prices were broken or out of service. The multicultural exhibits are outdated and borderline racist.
