“Great time - better geared to kids 5-8 than 8+”
Reviewed 12 February 2012

We had a lot of fun...worth about 3 hours of running around checking it all out. For my 9 year old, some of it was too baby-ish and we probably wouldn't go again too soon. That said, the little ones LOVE that water room, but remember to bring dry clothes so they can really go at it and have fun!!! The Harbour garage was only $7 on Saturday with a validation from the Museum. Walking distance to Phillips, Fogo de Chao, PF Changs, Panera Bread and Houlihan's.

“Fun for the kids.”
Reviewed 10 January 2012

This was a nice place, but it's in the middle of a sketchy area. Part upscale, part sketchy, so be prepared for that. Not much fun for the parents unless you like standing around watching your kids do stuff. The kids have a great time, though. Little pricey.

“Too much fun!”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

I took my students here on a field trip a few times. It was loads of fun! They have a bunch of cool, themed rooms for the kids to explore. Then, in the middle of the entire museum is a giant, multi-level playground. If I didn't have to supervise, I may have been in there myself.
