Fun, friendly children's museum. Very clean, many activities available. Exhibits are in different buildings, and many activities are outside....so this should be considered before visiting on a rainy day. Staff is excellent...engaging, knowledgeable, helpful.

Pricey, so that's why only 3 stars. The average working family would probably not be able to afford this museum. At $13 for each adult and each child a family of 4 would pay $52. That prices out working class families.
