Fun place for the littles! Not sure why anyone would give a negative review. The staff is friendly and helpful. Great with kids. My nieces age 3 and 6 love the Face paint area. There is also a farm area where you can pretend to milk a cow and feed the animals and pick fruit. A store with lots of pretend food. A whole dress up area with a stage and a mechanical room of sorts where kids can go through a factory process and assemble an item. They also have a themed story time with special toys that go along with the theme. And last but not least an outside fenced in play area with beautiful trees and play structures. Great place to role play with kids and get their imaginations going. It's geared towards children, so obviously the toys/props are gently loved, but no complaints!

My 2.5 year old granddaughter loves the museum! The rotation of the monthly STEAM activities is creative and gives great ideas for her mother to recreate at home. Thank you!

Great to spend a couple hours here with young children. My grandkids absolutely loved it. There's plenty for them to do and learn about.

Better for 4 to 7 year olds, a lot of the stuff is broken and there is very little information or direction. Some parents were letting their kids run amock. My 3 year old had fun but best to go when its less busy.

Awesome. Really cool concept. Amazing learning experience for young children. I was a little surprised that they charged adults for a kids activity, but at least it wasn't expensive. My four year old son had an absolute blast. We will definitely go back if we're ever in the area again. Definitely well worth it and fun.
