I took my 19 month child here February 23rd, 2017. She had so much fun. At 11 am they had story time but this was more suitable for older kids. Please note, this is not a museum but a playing place for kids.

Enjoyed this place very much. However, although had rained in the morning, the outdoor area was open, albeit wet! My little grandson loved digging in the sand, playing in the water table and trying to make bubbles! He also loved playing on the unique percussion...More
