This place is a great place for kids. Very entertaining with a variety of activities. The one thing that I disagree with is that adults have to pay. The place is not for grownups and just kids. Just my opinion.

The children's museum was by far a great experience for the children! The adults enjoyed it too! We loved that everything was hands on!
