There are so many activities for the kids here, and they constantly update with new areas. The admission cost is practically nothing. They even have a special area for infants. Best family value for activity in the Boro.

Just visited for the first time. We found the place very dirty and horribly disorganized. There are little play stations throughout but none of the toys and items that belong in the stations were there. Like, a grocery store with no groceries or anything whatsoever....More

This treasure is a great place to bring your kids for learning and exploring and for after hours birthday parties. It has a designated area for very young children. We like the different 'traveling' exhibits they offer. The staff aren't always available and/or attentive, often...More
