Lot's of variety of exhibits for ages 18 months to about 13 years of age. I used to take my kiddos hear all the time when they were younger. Now I bring my nieces and they love it!

This is an absolute find. The children were totally into the exhibits and the activities. We will keep visiting this place over and over again.

My kids enjoyed their time at the museum, especially the spy activity. But I have to say I found the majority of the staff completely uninterested in children. I mean, could you even greet them with a smile? Say hello? Ridiculous.More

Our kids (2 and 3) spent the whole day here and loved it. The museum staff is super friendly and helpful. They even helped us find a toy that my daughter had dropped. It totally made her day!

I LOVED taking my children here when they were younger. They have so many hands on activities, it's a treat taking the kids to an educational & fun museum, where they are encouraged to touch & actively participate. They always loved going to this museum!

One of the better children museums we have been too. Lot's of activities indoors and outdoors. Even though it was cold our daughters (ages 5 and 21/2 were enthralled by the outdoor water section.

Both of my kids really enjoyed this museum! They really thought of everything - a bank, grocery store, vet, restaurant, news station, courtroom and so much more! My 4 year old loved the bottom floor that had the LEGO car racetrack, rocket launcher, and make...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.

There are portions suitable for all ages. Both my 9 year old and developmentally delayed 5 year old were able to find things to enjoy. I saw many toddlers around!
