Took our two grandsons ages 4 and 5. They could spend all day there and never get bored. They especially love the real airplane that they can pilot. The grocery store and the play area with water are another great hit.

Wonderful place for children to play and learn. After having come here for years, it is clear that there are some area's that need updates and fixes. Otherwise, it is clean, organized and very family friendly.

Wonderful place to take the kids especially when the weather outside is bad. Lots of hands on activities that let them use their imaginations.

We always have an awesome time with my four kids here. We only wish there was something to explain the art area. We sometimes come late and our kids would go into that area without knowing it's closing soon.
