My girls, ages 5 and 3, love coming here. They love all the exhibits. There's always a fun art project. If it's very busy things can get a little too crazy. But they've learned a lot and it gets them thinking about things. Their favorite...More

My aunt and I take my little cousins here all the time. It's fun for them and extremely fun for us as we get to watch them explore their creative sides and interest with other children.

Suitable for children from 2 and up. My children had a blast and asked so many questions from space to farming. Very limited activities for children younger than 2. Place is high energy and has a cafe for snacks and lunch.

Took my 2yo grandson for an afternoon together. A great place with multiple play area inside and out. Each area has its own theme from music and water to art and space. My grandson ran from area to area until he was worn out. Price...More
