Other than a pool , it is difficult to find a place where young, very active children can run around and play during a summer heat wave. This place did the trick. My only complaint is there is limited eating for adults.

Very small museum with little to do, but at least not crowded or overpriced. Not a bad way to kill an hour if kids are aged 1-4.

The Children's Museum was so fun! It's great that kids can interact with the exhibits. My kids didn't want to leave. Even the adults had a good time. This is one place I hope to visit again.

Find a discount day for cheap admission, fun for young kids and they provide events etc...The main exhibits don't change much so my son wasn't interesting in going more then a few times. Great summer programs

Took my grandkids ages 3 and 5 and they had a blast. Learning experiences combined with fun for kids. Loved watching the excitement in their eyes!

I took a 10 and a 9 year old. I would say that is about the limit age wise. For younger children it is a fantastic place with tonnes of activities on offer and role play. My daughter enjoyed building a go cart with the...More
