Very colorful and full of activities for kids! It really helps their imaginations to soar! Gift shop is a little pricey.

Feels congested. Need to expand. Needs to add more displays. Like to have more education on screen or live interactive presentation.

I might have had more fun than my four year old grandson. Everything is interactive and fun. I would go again and I know my grandson would too. Highly recommend.

It was something to do with our 2 year olds. They had fun but most of it was a little to old for them.

Depending on your child's age, attention span, and interest, I would say anywhere from 1-3 hours. There is a cafe inside if you want to take a snack break. Everything is self-directed, so it's really up to you as to how... More
