Just came back from Strong, what a wonderful experience! We brought our 2 yr. old daughter, and at first she was truly overwhelmed with all of the things to look at she was a little bashful, but that didn't last too long! The Sesame Street area was wonderful, although I guess b/c I have a little one, I wish it were a bit bigger, it was a little smaller then expected. She loved the giant play train table, and Sister Bear from Berenstein Bears came out, and she loved that as well. I was impressed how well that was handled by staff b/c there wasn't a kiddie mob scene like I have seen at other places. The Carosel was awesome as well! We skipped a lot of the bigger kid stuff like video games and some of the Colonial stuff I knew she wouldn't be interested in, but I glanced at them and they looked really cool. We were also there during a Wizard of Oz Exhibit, which had something for all ages, but I have to say for little ones some of the stuff was a little scary. Berenstein Bears area was awesome, made for little ones, there is so much to do! Diner, clubhouse, farm area, all ready for little hands to play with! We also ventured upstairs to the actual 'museum' area where they have toys from it seemed like the beginning of time (lol), and it was really cool to look at too. Butterfly Conservatory looked beautiful, but we were so beat by the time we got to it, we skipped it.
I was actually amazed that you could pay only $13 and get such an amazing experience. The Gift Shop(s) were also reasonably priced as well, I was happy to see. There was a huge food court area, and a Diner inside as well, and those were also really reasonable. My only caution is that because this is a children's museum, a LOT of parents I saw used this as an excuse to not watch or discipline their children AT ALL, and there was a lot of pushing and rudeness from children old enough to know better without a parent in sight. If you keep that in mind, you'll be fine. We will be back ASAP!
