What an adorable CLEAN interactive museum! I went expecting not much but what a cute place! My kids had a blast which means I got to relax for a while! Loved the fire truck and the house upstairs... will definitely go back again!

The museum is really a pleasant experience. The grounds and museum are well kept, and the people are friendly. My 2 grandsons love to go there. They are ages 5 and 3.

The place is small and some of their attractions are really basic... More
