It is truly world class as the committees visited many iterations of children's museums before building this exceptional place where the whole family can enjoy the day...and in air-conditioned bliss.
We have had several memberships to other museums (Cincinnati Union Terminal, Ross Perot in Dallas) and this one ranks up with both of these museums.
