A fun and learning place for young children. Has numerous interactive sections where you can build and explore. There is plenty of staff available to answer questions and assist the young explorers.

They have a second floor with a theme that changes about quarterly. It's a wonderful place for children to learn. From building, to climbing, to arts and crafts and just plain fun, it's a great place to take the little ones.

Great place for families with small children. Be prepared - it is very noisy and chaotic but with many, many hands-on activities. Very clean and well maintained with great staff. A nice afternoon activity.
