Very enjoyable morning for our 2 and 4 year old grandchildren. Bank, store, school, water fun, and outdoor activities. Several school groups in attendance but there are many activities to share. Shopping in the store especially fun with bakery, fish counter, checkout with cash registers,

I came in expecting it to be a nostalgic museum for children artifacts, but it was a modern museum full of interactive and educational exhibits for kids. $1 off with military ID. There is a small gift shop that sells mostly educational toys.
