The children's museum was more fun than I remember. Over the holidays I took my grandchildren and there were many activities to engage in. Probably on a scale for younger children and 45 minutes, unless really engaged, will be enough time to spend here. I...More

The adults, well, if chasing after your kids and watching them play is fun for you, then you will have a good time. But, take comfort that the children are enjoying themselves. It's reasonably sized, enclosed space - plenty of room to play, but not...More

Thanks for the 5-star review and mention of our membership program! We encourage intergenerational play which may take the form of watching, interacting and playing with children plus sometimes chasing them. After all, kids are kids.

Based on the creations of Vernon Grant, this is a very interactive and joyful place for the young. Climbing, crawling and creating up and around the indoor playhouse. Your kids will love it.

Definitely worth a stop in if you have the time. I wasn't sure i'd find much in a "children's museum" but it is very creative.
