I went with my 3 1/2 year old and my parents for a visit, during the week. While the exhibits are nicely done and presented, it is not really appropriate for 3 1/2 years old. My daughter did have fun trying out all the things,...More

So glad to have the chance to see my grandchildren enjoy this wonderful place. Must admit that the blocks appeal to me almost as much as to them. And who would not enjoy the Bubble Room?

We are members of the museum. We love it! My children can spend hours there, or just run in for a quick visit. I would definitely recommend it.

Yes! there's so much for little ones to do. They have a specific place for toddlers but the rest of the museum has age appropriate exhibits.
