My two toddler grandsons love this place! Even though they are very young, there is still a lot for them to enjoy. And as they grow, they will just be able to move on to more mature attractions. What fun!

We went with my 10 year grandson. He had a blast with the activities. We also did the splash pad. The only drawback I thought was no senior discount.

We took our 2 year old, 15 year old and 2 year old nephew. Our 15 enjoyed playing with the little kids too. If it is pretty outside, it is definitely worth the extra $5 to do the outdoor "pass". Which includes the splash pad,...More

Although we had fun, this attraction is better suited for younger children. It seemed to be bigger and more fun when I was a kid.

Have taken my children several times and enjoyed the museum each trip. They have so many interactive things for young children to do while there. Best for ages 3-8 probably.
