I love this museum! I took my nephews there and they had a blast! It’s all completely hans on and the kids get to learn life lessons through playing. Its a lot of fun, even to just watch the excitement on their faces.

A great place to take your young children. Inter-active play areas and a learning environment. Kids love it because they can work at McDonalds or see the things used in a specific setting. They can run and play in an indoor building and be safe.

The museum is well run. There is a good variety of displays and activity areas to keep a wide age-range of children occupied and educated. It is located in a slightly shabby part of town, but that should not be a deterrent ti visit it.

My grandchildren had a lot of fun and didn't want to leave. They are always asking to go back, as well. I recommend this as a fun and educational trip for kids. There were benches throughout for grandparents and others to rest.
