I didn’t know what to expect from this, but was certainly surprised. While there are some regular museum areas, a lot of the building was built for exploration. There are tunnels, ramps, a ten story slide, and more! It was raining while we were there,...More

My family had a great time at this interactive adventure park. We should have given this place more time. The cost was a little high $98 for 6 people. The climbing, crawling, slides, caverns, activities seem endless. It is great for letting kids explore. My...More

Four floors of interesting and artistic items to admire. Every square inch of this place is some hidden gem of artwork and creativity. Let your inner child explore. It is a place built for kids to run, scream, and play. You will not see everything....More

Please don't. As much as you love your dog, other people don't. Would you want someone who loves their small pet snake to bring it in? Rat? Chicken? Where do you draw the line? Service animals - yes. Pets, stay home.
