Nothing bad to say about this place! A lot to keep everyone in the family entertained! It will bring you back to your childhood and fill you up with energy. Great for out of towners to visit.

“Fun for whole family!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2012

This is a fantastic stop for the kids, but adults will find themselves having a great time too! Everything is geared toward children; touching exhibits is encouraged and they are learning while they have fun.
