It has a lot of things your kids can pretend play with. The grocery store and diner was a big hit. There is also a cave for yours kids to have fun with. Recommended going early because it does fill up quick.

Great place to learn and burn some energy. It’s full of history since it in a Art Deco bldg that was the train station for a lot of the 1900’s. Cool exhibits and a mega marble globe in front to spin.

I agree with a previous poster's review that this is less a museum, more of a play area. We brought my 7 year old niece but the activities were too young for her. For example, there is a "grocery store" with plastic food. Fun pretend...More

We visited with 4 grandchildren, ages 3-10. Definitely geared to younger kids, maybe up to age 7. It is a indoor play space, not a museum. We expected more learning opportunities. Art space was fun but nothing that we don't already do with them at...More

When the Grandkids aged three to seven come to town they always ask for it and have a great time. I think the Broad St. location is the best one. Be sure to include a ride on the carousel which runs hourly and costs $...More
