I bring my grandkids here when I want to take them somewhere that is affordable for me and fun for them! There's lots to keep them busy and their imaginations can run wild. The set-up is nice...different areas sport different themes...construction, an office, a cafe,...More

Perfect for children under 7. Different areas for roleplaying. Recently updated but quickly worn down, for the cost of admission I would expect it to be better maintained. Rather annoying that adults and children have to pay admission. They do offer family memberships, it saves...More

The children's museum is more like an indoor play area for young children, I think 8-9yo is the max age where this place is appropriate. There are a lot of interesting activities and fun things for kids to do. I definitely recommend!
