I treated my good friend and her 11 year old daughter Emily to this venue. It was the first time for me as well. Frankly it was run down, many of the exhibits non-funtioning, and in general boring. But I must confess I am spoiled...More

Outstanding children's museum, geared to multiple age levels and parents as well. Moderately priced. Would be nice if they would ask parents to turn off their cell phones so they would actually interact with their kids since that is partially the purpose of the museum...More

Great place to bring your kids especially when it is too hot to be outside. My 6-year-old son had so much fun in the ear, nose, throat and grocery store area.

Other than a pool , it is difficult to find a place where young, very active children can run around and play during a summer heat wave. This place did the trick. My only complaint is there is limited eating for adults.

Very small museum with little to do, but at least not crowded or overpriced. Not a bad way to kill an hour if kids are aged 1-4.

The Children's Museum was so fun! It's great that kids can interact with the exhibits. My kids didn't want to leave. Even the adults had a good time. This is one place I hope to visit again.
