This museum is a MUST!!! I love all of the hands on activities! This museum encourages exploration and imagination. Kids of all ages were running learning through play and having a blast while doing it. There are even exhibits for the adults to assist or join in on. Pure, clean fun for everyone!

This is a fun place to explore and let your child's imagination run wild. They are friendly and helpful and are always changing out exhibits to keep you wanting to come back. They keep it clean and allow lots of opportunities to learn. Great in all types of weather, which is our main reason for having a membership.

I have been to many children's museums around the country, but none are better than what we have at home. My kids must have been there at least 50 times and they never get tired of going.

I am so proud Jackson has this museum. I give a family membership to my niece for Christmas every year.They spend hours here regularly. My 4 year old grandnephew must go to the "bluezeum" and never tires of it. It is very interactive with opportunities for a variety of age groups.I won't tell him it's educational!

We take our kids here often, even the 9 year old still enjoys going. They have a lot to offer and it's both fun and educational.

Such an interactive place for kids. I knew my five year old would have fun but I was worried that my twelve year old would be bored. Not the case! The giant scrabble board was a favorite. Music areas and dance areas kept them playing together and having a good time. The water area was fun with fishing and boat... More
