This is a great rainy day activity. My kids (5 yo boy and 8 yo girl) absolutely loved it. The staff was very friendly and the price is reasonable.

Our grandchildren (ages 4 and 7) loved the museum. They have many centers including a simulated airplane, dress up clothes ffor a pirate's ship, cash register, kitchen, veterinarian "hospital", puppet show, and several other children's centers. It is good for all children.
