Went here for a couple hours with our six-year old while we were on vacation. The museum is fairly small and modest, but was a lot of fun. Big hits were the veterinary office area, the grocery store and the mining for gems.

I am not sure why this is called a museum. It has one section that is informational. Aside from that it's just a play area. It was raining the day we went so I get that it was going to be crowded. It wouldn't have...More

Watch the faces of your children as they are captured by the creative play. Whoever designed this museum/play area has to be a child at heart, mother, teacher, or all three.

We were trying to beat the heat with our 19 month old and weren't very impressed with this place. Everything felt worn, old and dirty. There were several age appropriate activities, but the disorganization was distracting. It was better than having nothing to do on...More

We visited based on Trip Advisor reviews and are so glad that we did. Lots of hands-on activities in a very comfortable environment. We had a 3-, 4-, and 5-year old and they all loved it. This will be a regular attraction for us in...More

I can't give an accurate review of the facility because we never made it inside. We thought this would be a perfect activity for a rainy morning, but there was nowhere to park. The museum is located in a shopping area with very little parking....More
