This is a fairly low tech hands on play space. Our grandchildren loved it from age 16 months to 5 yes. Let's them use their imaginations, fine and gross motor skills in a safe space. Plenty of seats for grandma.

The museum is small over priced and not worth it. Alot of prices were broken or out of service. The multicultural exhibits are outdated and borderline racist.

I think this place is great for kids and families. I missed places like this when our family moved to western NYS from Mass. Which was very family oriented with things to do. So. Greatly appreciated this museum.
