Great exhibits that are safe for toddlers. My 1 yr. old loved it and was able to get out all his energy and really have a great time with his cousin. His aunt, his grandmother and I had fun too!!

Loved taking a picture of my daughter having tea with Alice in Wonderland. Lots of things to touch and play on. Great for "city" kids to see how a farm runs. Worth the visit.
