It’s an old, large house converted into a children’s play place with math, art, science, make-believe and a little history. It’s similar to other children’s museums but is the largest we’ve visited.

Wonderful place to visit! Older kids such as teenagers won’t enjoy as much but a must for someone with smaller kids! A definite visit especially on those hot summer days!

Although the place seems small but there is SO much to do and see. My son had a lot of time in the Wonder Works as well as role-playing.

There's a lot to see. They might like it. I would take my GS Troop there if it was closer. Good luck.
