Kept our 3 year old busy the entire time. Lots of busy time for infants and up! We bought a year membership and plan on visiting more often.

We love it so much, we get passes despite being from Kansas City. Nice drive up, and we get half price at children's museums at other cities.

This is a must do for children. The creativity and interesting things to do are myriad. Easily, you can spend all day. From the make up to the stage to the firetruck, to the pretend store, the list goes on. Wonderful treasure!

Plenty of fun interactive attractions here. Kids get to learn, play and interact with 3 levels of exhibits. Including a giant 3 story clock, a lunar lander, and a fire engine. Kids will be running around for hours and still have plenty to do here....More
