Lots of fun to be explored and discovered here! You can definitely make a day of it. Bring lunch as their options aren't that great.

It took my two grandchildren to the Children's museum over Christmas break. The museum is excellent and they are always updating the exhibits. Our visit was the same day that the Liberty Bowl was held on the next property. Museum staff made sure to keep patrons updated on the traffic situation, which was extremely helpful.

My son is almost 2. We took him and it was very child friendly! There were kids of all ages. They have a certain section for 4 and under but we went all over easily. My sons favorite was the fishing area and the disco dancing room and vehicles. It was 15 each for 3 of us. 4 dollar parking.... More

What a wonderful experience, both indoor and outside. We happened to go on a day that wasn't very busy so my kids got to spend as much time as they wanted with all the different exhibits. The only criticism is that there was very little option to purchase food in the small snack area and we were starving after playing... More

Lots of activities to engage children and adults. Easy to navigate through the different experiences. Fun way to learn about local interests. We stayed about 4 hours and definitely will return. Don't miss the outside activities!

We purchased a membership and every time we went the owner (older white male) was always so rude to his employees. Not a huge fan of that but the kids like to go and enjoy a few hours. check facebook to see if groups will be there try to avoid the big group days because it is nuts!

The new Splash Pad is worth getting a membership for the summer. My 6yo daughter loves to go and play when it is hot. The outdoor playground is a lot of fun as well. She loves the zip line. There are a lot of activities inside, perfect for any time of the year! She has always loved the grocery store,... More
