My 4 year old really enjoyed exploring and playing at this museum! Definitely geared toward kids 5 and under. It offered a nice variety of play options--fine motor, crafts and most of all, pretend play!

Fun place to keep kids busy! Lots of things to do! Mine from 14 and under really enjoyed it. They even have a nice place for infants to play and not get ran over by older kids.
