We had a 15 & 17 year in our kid party of 4... they were concerned they were too old. Wrong - they had a blast. So many things to do! Safe environment, great experience! Parking can be tricky, so be sure to plan ahead....More

Young kids will have an awesome time exploring all of the fun exhibits. My child enjoyed the shopping mart, playing cashier and shopper; playing chef in the kitchen; acting as an architect, an optometrist; and playing with the electricity and plumbing connections. The best exhibits...More

Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district
is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing
assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having
