My grandkids just love this place. I am so happy to have a indoor place to take the grands when the weather is not right for going outside. They always burn off some energy and have a great time.

We're so glad you had a great time at the museum! Play Waco was renovated in October of 2016, and it's been a great addition to the discovery areas. We're so glad your family enjoyed your time here!

My kids love coming here. Their little minds are constantly stimulated with all the exhibits. The play areas do their job of wearing them out physically. I wish more cities had something like this. PS: first Sunday of the month is FREE ADMISSION

5-10 bucks per person... Also check into the family membership. Possibly a cheaper solution if you think you will visit more than once.
