This is a small Museum and it is a great idea to introduce toddlers to museums. There are not many things in WInston-Salem for young children and this would be the place to go.

Lots of activities for the small to 9 or 10 year old. Great storybook area. My little one especially loved the grocery store & donut factory. Wish they had longer hours.

The Kaleideum is a wonderful adventure place for kids. My kids loved this place since they were two. They are eleven and nine and still find things to do here. It is great for kids who love to have imaginative play.
