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.

Such a wonderful museum. The exhibits are so well presented and what felt like a really small space better suited for younger kids turned into a delightful time for all of us. The bank and the kitchen/diner thrilled my 9 and 12 year olds

My grandchildren love it here. We go at least once a year when they visit. It's for younger children, probably no older than 6 or 7.
