This is a great children's interactive museum, but it is not a real tourism attraction. It is made and oriented for local kids to discover and enjoy.

As it's name indicates it is great for children (School ages). Quite a few interactive exhibits where kids can learn as they play. The museum employees are young high school and college students, courteous and great kid entetainers.

This museum was so much fun! It was ten bucks for the two of us, and we had an amazing time. Everything was built for kids, but it was pretty much all interactive and tactile. I imagine this would be a great family outing, but...More
