A nice place.for kids to roam and learn. Not a place to take your kid and "let them run wild". Parental involvement is a big part of this place. We had fun as our daughter learned a out fire fighting ( I'm a retired FF) and working on crab boats and so many other things. I think her favorite part was the karaoke room and making huge bubbles. The shadow room was pretty cool too.

The term museum is misleading. Several highly interactive play/experience stations cosponsored by local corporations. While it's not as sleek as the children museum/science centers as found in larger cities, it is great place to bring your children especially during the hot summer. My 2 year old truly enjoyed her experience and did not want to leave. We are considering buying the year pass.

Kids have a lot of fun here. Something for kids from 2 to 8 or 9. Unlike most children's museums the price is reasonable for what you get. Good way to kill 2 hours in the heat of the day.

We had a blast!! The staff was very helpful and the place was clean and fun. We enjoyed that it wasn't super crowded and there were things to do for all age groups.

My child loves this place. I wish that some of the exhibits would be updated though. Overall it's a great place for kids to play and use their imagination.
