We took our 2.5 year old son here and he could have spent all day in the toddler area. Lots of creative play opportunities. Not much for toddlers to do outside of the one area, but the area they had was great.

Used to be a great place for young children to express themselves and interact t with exhibits and just have fun. Now big business Pro Medica forcing it to close by buying their parking structure. Way to go Pro Medica, greed conquers and children suffer.
