My big kid and little kid both have fun here. It's a great way to spend an afternoon. They love the cafe and sprinkler outside when it's warm. I don't like that parents have to pay full price but I understand there are operating costs....More

My son, my two young grandchildren and I visited and spent several hours. The kids were thoroughly entertained and we enjoyed watching them have fun. IMO, this Museum is geared primarily toward children age 10 and under.

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
