My grandkids love this place because they can run, climb, hide, scramble, and do all those things that kids should be doing.

This interactive museum is great for toddlers through elementary school kids. Lots of hands-on activities (pulleys, rocket blasting, block building) in the physics forest. Kids who like insects will enjoy the crawl through the ant hole. Bigger kids love the climbing towers, too.

We held our CAAEYC - honoring the educators 2018. It has full of discovery and exploration. I wished I brought my son here but hopefully someday I'll be back and visit this place again.

Wonderful outdoor museum full of great hands-on learning exhibits. Make sure to bring a change of clothes a towel and water shoes - your kids will get muddy and wet! Perfect day out with children, do not miss it!

We brought our 20-month-old granddaughter here. She enjoyed it, but we were surprised at the limited hands-on experiences for the toddler set. One nice point was having a special room for the little ones (ECLC, Early Childhood Learning Center). If play areas are cross-overs with...More
