An excellent place for young kids to learn and explore. The staff is always available and helpful. Kids can explore a changing array of educational sand stimulating, hands on activities.

Our Lake Tahoe weekend got completely rained out, and with 4 kids they were getting cabin fever. This place totally saved us, we got to relax while our kids played for 4 hours! I wish every town had an indoor park like this.

This wonderful "exploratorium" for younger kids (best for ages 10 and under) is a wonderful place with themed, interactive exhibits that are continuously changing. The caring, artistic staff are enthusiastic and welcoming. A great family resource for visitors and locals alike.

If you are looking for a place to entertain the young kids during a bleak winter day or week, this is the place. Lots of things to do and play with and other kids there as well.

Our kids love the place. We've been here many times, kids always find something new to do. There's areas they can independently play, areas to make friends and group play, areas for art, areas for science exploration, even an indoor playset to climb and slide....More

A great place for the little ones to explore and let their creative juices flow! A nice change of pace on the way out of Tahoe.

Admission is $8 for everyone, which I felt was a bit pricey. It is small my daughter(age 4) was done after 2 hrs, we didn't do outdoor things due to rain. I felt it was a bit squished, seemed to clear out around 12:00 though....More

Checked for address on their website as we drove into Truckee. Not open after 1:30 in summer, according to the site. We have 2 disappointed preschoolers.
