The only drawback is that it would be nice if the facility could hold more people, but I didn’t feel cramped while I was there. Otherwise it was reasonably priced and there was plenty to do. I’ve been to smaller children’s museums that cost much...More

We visited with family on a busy Saturday. It was a busy place, but with plenty of hands, we tracked our littles and had a blast. The staff was very helpful and the water was a favorite. It was clean and fun.

Cold and wet outside but lots of activity going on inside the children’s museum. So many things to see and do for the little ones that they can run and get lost in a jiffy. It was pretty busy there today because of the weather...More

While some of this is just part and parcel of a typical children's museum this one could use some cleaning and some better supervision. When parents do not supervise their children it is incumbent on the management to take over. Too many running/screaming kids, not...More
