We love it so much, we get passes despite being from Kansas City. Nice drive up, and we get half price at children's museums at other cities.

So much to explore and do! Science, art, drama, math and business made fun. They will forget they're learning! Take them while they're little!

This is a must do for children. The creativity and interesting things to do are myriad. Easily, you can spend all day. From the make up to the stage to the firetruck, to the pretend store, the list goes on. Wonderful treasure!

Plenty of fun interactive attractions here. Kids get to learn, play and interact with 3 levels of exhibits. Including a giant 3 story clock, a lunar lander, and a fire engine. Kids will be running around for hours and still have plenty to do here....More

Our grandsons love this place. There is so much to do and even when it is very crowded, they have learned to be patient and to take turns. We like that you can buy a dual membership to the museum and to the children's zoo...More

Every year we get a membership. Kids always find something to hold their attention. Some things are broken or don't work as they should but the kids never seem to mind. Love to come here especially in the summer when it's so hot outside.

We went here with our two children age 5 and 6 and our nephew age 10. All of the kids had a great time even the ten year old. Their favorite was the giant clock that they had to build bricks and every 15 minutes...More
