The museums exhibits are designed not just to entertain but also to teach. There are activities and experiments for all age levels. So a seven-year-old can be entertained but a 14-year-old can still be challenged by science experiments. And even grandparents can enjoy the enthusiastic...More

One of the best children's museum I've ever been to. Almost a little overwhelming, that's what my 7 year old grandson said. There could be a little more direction in the"Kidtroplis" area.

This museum is a must for those with small children. My nine year old still has a good time, but I think most kids ages 7 and under would love it. They have plenty of activities both inside and outside.

Our 5 year old loved it! There was so much to do. So glad we went first thing in the morning when it opened because it was super busy and started to get very packed with field trips and visitors.

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!
