Great children’s museum. My 4 year old loved all the hands on activities, art, and the model trains! The museum is small, but a wonderful value.

This place is great for children ages 1 and over. Different age levels for each floor and much better than the Childrens Museum in Lafayette. They even have a special place with the model trains for the real model train enthusiasts that is awesome from...More

This is a great place for kids! Don't tell the kids how much fun you had too. :) It's a place that you both can keep going back and still have fun.

We were a bit skeptical when pulling up but for someone to take a older building, and make it what they did for the kiddos. They did a great job. It's 3 floors and my kids had more fun here than they did at the...More
