A gem of a museum for children from birth to about age eight. Children learn about babies, animals, motor vehicles, arts & crafts with hands on interactive exhibit areas. Usually very busy but the hour or two after opening are much less crowded.

This is the greatest attraction for young children. My favorite part to take the kids is the miniature Potbelly's and grocery store. I highly recommend this for a rainy day. Plan on about 2 hours for the visit.

My kids loved it but were constantly having to wait. It was rainy and cold and therefore, busy. We brought a lunch which saved us from waiting at the cafe. Very friendly people working there. Just be prepared for the crowds on a rainy day.

We went here with our grandchildren during Christmas week and loved it. There is a huge selection of interactive stations and plenty of staff to help. I liked that they limit tickets so it is not overly crowded.
