This is the perfect place to bring high energy on a rainy day. There are so many interactive exhibits for children of all ages, ( although they cater to 10 and under ). Those who have inquisitive children will appreciate the learning opportunities. For those...More

We have four kids ages ranging from 8-2. We spent close to five hours here and they were sad when we said we had to go. The place was simply brilliant.

This children’s museum is excellent for a 4 year old! He had a blast with the fire trucks, police cars, tunnels, slides, Kroger grocery store and kids space. It’s $15 for adults and $7.50 for kids. But, if you have reciprocal membership it’s 1/2 off.

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves here and spent about 2 hours. There is a splash pad for extra but with rain in the forecast we decided against it. It looked as though most locals were there for the splash pad mainly. The inside is cool but...More

I don't believe so. We didn't try. They may have a system in place where you can. I would try to call and ask.
