Well designed play areas for various ages. Gigantic sand hill with shovels and trucks, bubble lab where various shapes and sizes of bubbles are blown up for kids, to a maze of vacuum tubes carrying plastic balls put in by the kids, that when the receiving container hanging from the ceiling fills up, they are dumped on the kids. The... More

We visited the museum last week with a 3 year and 10 year old. There was plenty for both of them to enjoy. The building area with the real tools and instructions on how to make items with recycled materials was one of the 10 year olds favorite areas. There is also a grassy outdoor area and playground that you... More

Really great place for kids with a whole lot of things for them to do and see. I would recommend this place to all families with kids. This is one of the finer children's museums I have ever been to.

Arrive as early as you can, especially on school and family holidays. Park as far left or east (towards the roller coasters located across the river) as you can. Use the 50 cent lockers for coats and diaper bags. Each discovery area has only one way in/out so you easily track your little ones. Lastly, have all your kids wear... More

Visited the museum for the first time. Was impressed with all the different exhibits and learning stations for the kids. It was very crowded which made it hard totaled our time and enjoy it all but my 6 year old was loving it all. Great variety of topics/stations for all ages and interests.

There was plenty to keep our 2 yo nephew busy for hours today and he had a blast. The sand area (very soft, silky sand) was wonderful and the water feature was great (warm enough to enjoy today). The fire truck was also a big hit. Hope to return soon and check-out all the activities on the 2nd floor -... More

The museum is jam packed with things for your little one to do. The grocery store is so fun for them and they wil love to climb through the forest. For the older kids, the tech building section is very interactive. I would say there isn't a whole lot for kids over the age of ten, but younger kids will... More

The museum is very entertaining and has several interactive exhibits that will keep the kiddos entertained and educate them at the same time.
