Even as an adult I thought this place was so fun!! It reminds me of a children's museum I went to as a kid. Very interactive, super fun, all kinds of things for them to tinker around with.

Good for all ages! Me and a friend took our kids here two 11 year olds and one 4 year old. My son one of the 11 year olds loved the lab and the auto mechanic.

Kids (best for under 12) love this place. Lots to do; several floors of interactive exhibits. Well managed and gets better all the time. A real Gem in Harrisonburg.
