This is a great museum for kids. So many hands on things to do. This has to be the best children's museum we have been to. Simply awesome!

Whether you are climbing, making bubbles or learning how to cook, there is never a dull moment here. I have been taking my kids here for years and there is always something new to experience or explore. Membership options are very reasonable as well.

This is fantastic! Bubble room was sooooo great, as well as the recycled construction area and the climbing zone. We were there for 4 hours and only left then because we had plans. Our oldest child was 12 and he was entertained too.
