My girls, ages 5 and 3, love coming here. They love all the exhibits. There's always a fun art project. If it's very busy things can get a little too crazy. But they've learned a lot and it gets them thinking about things. Their favorite...More

My aunt and I take my little cousins here all the time. It's fun for them and extremely fun for us as we get to watch them explore their creative sides and interest with other children.

Suitable for children from 2 and up. My children had a blast and asked so many questions from space to farming. Very limited activities for children younger than 2. Place is high energy and has a cafe for snacks and lunch.

For $7.50pp it is a great price for a day of fun. It is a learning center and parents are expected to play along with their children and answer their questions. The reason for 3 stars and not 5 is because there are no employees...More
