Best birthday present ever for your child or grandchild. Sharing the experiences and learning together is the best! Keeps kids (and adults) curious and asking good questions. We had great fun outside exploring the water and sand exhibits.

First time visiting with my kids. There is so much to do. My kids age between 3-8. They all found stuff they liked. Lots of hands on learning. We spent almost 3 hours here and my kids would have liked to stay longer.

My husband and I brought our 6 year old here, and he had a blast! He loved the fire engine, the bubble room, playing at the vet clinic, climbing all over, and just getting to be a kid. My son does have autism and did...More

Sorry to hear your kiddo was a little overwhelmed. Did you happen to discover our low-sensory room, The Nest? It is located next to the Center for the Young Child and is perfect for when you need a quiet moment.

My kids elementary were engaged from the moment we got out of the car. There are play grounds on the walk up and the exhibits start right at the entry. They loved the three story climbing mountain. Just put your helmet on and start climbing...More
