So much to see and do! Little kids and big kids loved it. Besides the fun part there’s a lot of learning.

I brought my 3 year old nephew here and he loved it! So many activities for small children to do in their age appropriate areas. A good way to tire out the kiddos and give them an educational opportunity as well.

My kids had fun... which is the number factor. But it was so packed we couldn't really enjoy all of it. You could barely take a step without bumping into someone. The staff was nice, but not overly motivated to help. There is too much...More

Hey, Suzy! The Museum recommends arriving early or arriving late during the day. That also depends on the season; during the school year, crowd comfort is at it's best.

Absolutely! There will be a few things he/she can't do, but as opposed to the things your toddler will be able to do- it's worth it. I've been taking my child since he was a little over 1. Great place!
