We went on a Monday when the adults pay and the kids are free. I think it cost 7.50 for myself and my 2 grand kids. It's small compared to other similar places, but that was the best part. I could watch the toddler and...More

Small children's museum on way to museum hill. Fairly standard exhibits, geared more towards younger children (6 and under). The place is quite small which limits the "exploring"; also, as others noted, staff seems more comfortable hanging out amongst themselves rather than engaging kids. If...More
