Compared to other childrens museums the exhibits aren't great, lots of parts are broken or missing, but the children still enjoy it. You'd think with the price of admission they could fix some stuff, plus a lot of exhibits are donated. We come about 3 times a year and for the last 3 years the exhibits haven't changed or had any upkeep.

A lot of fun for the kids. So many options. 4 stars instead of 5 because bathroom cleanlineas needs more attention
