This gem of a place is the Mecca of all children's activities. Don't let them run wild because you might loose track of them but they have activities and different interest set up all over the museum. There's a handy man station, fireman station, cooking...More

An excellent place for the kiddies (up to about age 10) and fun for adults too. The exhibits/stations were well thought out and planned and the kids seem to be having a great time. There are stations that cater to the younger children as well...More

Truly awesome place for kids. My son is 18 months and loved it however there were many older kids up to age 10. There's a toddler area with ball pit and garden. Mini Publix, vet, hospital and outback steakhouse for imaginary play. Definitely must visit!

I took my two boys here yesterday. There was a lot for my 2 year old to do, but not as much for my 5 year old. It was perfect for small kids!

Our three year old absolutely loved this place. While the facility itself isn't especially large, they do a good job in packing in a good amount of stations to enjoy. Our son especially loved the Publix play grocery store! It was so cute seeing him...More

Our third time. Every March break we stop here. It's a great place on a cool/rainy day or when you need a break from the sun. There's too many exhibits to list. But my son loves the fire truck and and the giant climbing apparatus...More

How long does it take to go through the whole museum? I'm wondering how many hours to allow for the visit. Any suggestions on average time spent at the museum?

Hi, you could spend 3-4 hours here if you wanted to. It's almost difficult to pull the kids out of there because they love it so much. We did go once for an hour because we didn't know what was inside and needed to check it... More
