It is an interactive museum. Everybody can touch the exhibitions but make sure to be in company of a child when you go. Adults are not allowed if they are not taking a child. Parking is available and it is near other museums and the zoo.

A very large group of my elementary students had an incredible experience visiting this museum. Organization and tours for every age are perfectly planned. We will repeat each year!

We visited this museum and although my kids had fun, I could not help but notice that it is a bit outdated and a very basic effort for a kids museum. If you have an option, skip this one and go to the zoo which is near by instead b

We've been to the museum 4+ times and purchased an annual membership since we had so much fun. The staff is very friendly and there is an array of activities to keep little ones busy (a 2 year old, in our case). Favorite activities: - "farm yard" with activities for pre-walkers and toddlers, - the giant ball room for collecting... More

We went with 4 children and 6 adults on a Friday - seems that local schools take their students on excursions to the Museum on Fridays...woah! tons of children but the museum staff did a great job managing the crowd so that it was possible to enjoy the museum in spite of the crowds. But for another time, I would... More

I was really disappointed because they just didn't let me in because I didn't have any children with me, that is, you only enter the museum if you are a kid or if you have a kid with you....

While living in Guatemala, I escorted students from my high school while they took children from a local orphanage to this museum. It is full of hands on educational, and especially science, activities. It is as good as any museum like this in the US. The children from the orphanage simply ran from one exhibit to the next. Highly recommended!
