This two-story fun and educational museum teaches children about science, history, community living and the arts through hands-on activities in a mock schoolhouse, fire department and bank and through challenges such as encapsulating themselves in a giant soap bubble.

We took our 2 year old granddaughter to the museum and she loved it! We were impressed with all of the themed play areas and friendly staff. Hope to take her again soon.

We took our two year old when visiting Lake George. It was a bit smaller than expected but the space was well utilized and there are many nice exhibits. Our little guy had a great time in the 1.5 hrs we spent there,

Great day filled with exploratory fun. Each section of this children's museum was exciting - Geared for pre-school - Kind age. Loved the upstairs village. Gift Shop was surprisingly reasonable - Good quality treasures that will continue imaginative play.

Nice place to hang out with our 4-year old. He enjoyed the bubbles, mosaics, train table, and play kitchen. It's small, but well worth a visit with smaller kids. They host birthday parties also.
