“Many types of activities for children.”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

The learning centers are interactive and cover many different learning objectives for many age groups. My grandchildren enjoyed the TV studio and play acting the different roles of a news cast. The physics center and the art studio were also interesting. There is also a physical fitness area that reminds us that children at play are more healthy and capable to maintain an attention span. The visit was fun and interesting and lasted about 3hours. Highly recommend it for children younger than 10 or 11.

There are so many fun things for kids to do here. You will get lost in all of the exploratory fun. Make sure you have at least 3 hours to enjoy everything.
