We took our grandkids (ages 4 and 1.5 years) here for a couple of hours - could have stayed longer! So many interactive activities for them. They were totally engaged and enthralled. Provided some education as well as entertainment. Creative stimulation, too.

It was really neat. A few neat features. We went on first Fridays so it was free. Would be good place for summer programs.

This museum is best for under 6 years old, but older kids will enjoy it, too. Just about everything is active participation. There are 3 stories of fun, discovery, try, and pretend. There are paid art activities and member activities.

My daughter absolutely loves this place!!! We have been multiple times and she never gets tired of it. Not only is there 3 floors worth of activities, but there are different "classes" at different times of the year. The different art-related activities are her favorite....More
