It definitely was super cute, but it is basically a single room that is actually pretty small with different areas of play. It was too crowded when we went and it didn't appear they cared about how many people they could fit into one small area. You have to also pay $5/adult which is really not worth it. They also...

Took our 18 month old grandson and he had a ball. Many different play areas: restaurant, doctor's office, gym, building zone, fishing boat.....Clean and well-maintained. Staff friendly and helpful.

We came, along with a gazillion others, to have some fun on a rainy day. My three year old daughter loved it. Stations included a restaurant, grocery store, large boat, teddy bear doctor's office, dress up stage, trains, blocks, etc. All your typical things for a kid's museum. Boat was very unique. $7 for kids, $5 for adults and less... More

We were trying to beat the heat with our 19 month old and weren't very impressed with this place. Everything felt worn, old and dirty. There were several age appropriate activities, but the disorganization was distracting. It was better than having nothing to do on a very hot afternoon, but we didn't stay very long.

We visited based on Trip Advisor reviews and are so glad that we did. Lots of hands-on activities in a very comfortable environment. We had a 3-, 4-, and 5-year old and they all loved it. This will be a regular attraction for us in the future.

I can't give an accurate review of the facility because we never made it inside. We thought this would be a perfect activity for a rainy morning, but there was nowhere to park. The museum is located in a shopping area with very little parking. Also, the address listed on their website is incorrect.

I came by today that check the place out and meet the wonderful ladies running the place. My grandchildren have been here but I didn't come when they did so I wanted to locate the place so I can return with them in the future. Great place for the kids especially in hot or rainy weather.

My husband and I were looking for something to do with our 17-month old son on a really hot day. I came across this place on TripAdvisor and we decided to give it a try. And we were so happy we did! Upon entering we were greeted by a woman (who's name I regretfully didn't get). As she rang us... More

Our three kids had a great afternoon playing here while we were on our vacation. There are lots of fun and educational things to do. It was the perfect activity for a hot, rainy day. The boat and the sand tables were our favorite! But the collection of dress up clothes and giant stuffed animals were loved, too!
