“Wonderful Place For Young Children”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

My 1.5 year old daughter had a great time playing in the museum, but especially enjoyed the Tuesday For Tots program. We live in the area and this was our first visit, but I plan on returning! The price was very reasonable ($6/each) and the exhibits were very engaging and well planned.

I think the exhibits are appropriate for early elementary (1st grade) and younger children. As our visit was in the morning on a weekday, there were many toddler/pre-school age children at the museum, and all were very well behaved. The staff made us feel very welcome.

I would recommend this to anyone with young children who are going to be in the Saratoga area!

“Great Place for young children”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2012

I have been inside recently but haven't been to partake with the family in a number of years, but I can say from experience that this is really a fun place for kids. You will want to stay a while. There is a shadow room, train, cafe, bank and general store with plenty of fake food to serve and fake vegetables to buy. It is also a great place to have a birthday party.

“Fun for Toddlers and older”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2012

My 4 year old loves this place, it's a little pricey for just a one day admission but the annual pass is a great deal if you are local.
