I took my daughter (7) as an outing after moving from the Seattle, Washington area. Let me start by saying "This place is HUGE". We spent roughly 6 hours exploring, running around, building, twisting, climbing, and jumping. EVERYTHING is interactive. Kids are encouraged to interact,...More

Great place to take young children, my kids love this place and there is a ton for them to do and learn. Great for kids 10 and younger. One of our favorite places to take our kids when they were younger (under 6).

I cannot say enough good things about this museum! Enough to do to fill multiple days, and they succeed at the major challenge of appealing to Kids and teens of all ages!? We spent hours in Kidtropolis alone. Seeing American Ninja Warriors was a dream...More

My daughter definitely liked this museum the only thing was that it was packed to almost full capacity so she didn't get to go the small town fast-pass.
