This museum was tons of fun my three year old played for over an hour! Only downside was people don't parent their children so their are kids running wild but that happens anywhere!

My son loved his visit here! He was really interested in the water room and also the outside fire truck. But his favorite was the castle, hands down!! He ran all over that like there's no tomorrow! He also really enjoyed the pirate ship!

If you have kids under the age of 10, this is a great place to visit. The Children's Museum has spaces for all ages, from crawlers to racers. It's a pretty big facility. There is a pirate ship and a castle, indoor areas and outdoor...More

We have several children's museums around our area so we weren't sure what to expect at one that cost so much less. The museum had almost everything ours back home does, plus more. The art and tools sections were very nice and once I got...More
