Great place for children to both learn and play. My 5 year old loves it. There is a pretend ice cream shop, post office. Theater Stage, and more. Currently $5.00 per person. Or you can purchase a yearly pass. This is the 2nd year we have gotten the yearly pass, good deal if you are local.

Great for children, I just wish there were places for them to climb/explore. There are spots with rocks that my little one loves to climb, but she gets in trouble if she does. πŸ˜› otherwise, it's fantastic!! πŸ’œ

This is a great little museum for small children. Our son enjoyed pushing around a shopping cart and playing with in the music room.

This place is awesome! I love taking my kids because they have so much fun and there are many activities for them. And it is only $5 each to get in. Wonderful for a rainy day or anyday.

A fun, inexpensive place to take the kids for a few hours of safe, semi-educational fun. The "museum" description may be a bit of a stretch, but it still provides some quality teaching opportunities. But what they do have is several different themed kid size play areas, that kids can interact with and learn about such as, a grocery store area that has little shelves and little shopping carts and they even have a working cash register with a working conveyer belt. The shelves are sectioned into fruits grains oils etc... So that kids can learn about the food pyramid. There's a vet office with x-rays of animals for kids to look at and stuffed animals for kids to "treat". They also have a stage with curtains and dress up clothes so kids can put on a play for their parents. Beside the stage is a small puppet theater with puppets. There's a post office, a baby nursery with baby dolls, an ice cream shop, a Lego area with race track and an art area where they can paint, draw in sand, blow huge bubbles etc.., and every where you look they have various facts on plaques for kids or parents to read and learn. All in all it's not as educational as a traditional museum, but it's certainly more fun for the young and young at heart crowd. But probably the best part about the place(aside from wearing out the kids lol) is all the adorable photo opportunities to takeπŸ“·πŸ“ΉπŸ“±πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ’ž Sooooo cute!!!
