Amazing place to take the little ones. It is $12 a head and parking isn't free but on a rainy day this will keep your kids busy having fun and learning for hours. Memberships are available as well for those that are interested and there is a gift shop inside. There is an outdoor play area as well with tons of fun activities.

Great amazing awesome staff! They are so kind and helpful! My kids love this place and it isn't so crowded so we can enjoy ourselves. Pay to park on street or in their lot. Also during summer, the man made stream outside is great to play in.

This is a great place to bring kids. Admission is worth every penny and the kids play all day. They maintain the attractions which cant be said for every kids museum. They change the attractions and/or themes regularly making it great for return trips.

This Children's Museum is FANTASTIC! We had a lot of fun there and the exhibits are in really good repair. I spent 5 hours there with my twin 4-year olds and they had a blast. Parking is a bit limited and it was a bit stressful when we had a hard time finding each other on the different levels of the climbing and slide part.

My children love to come here. The first Friday of each month they have a free night from 5-9, and we try never to miss a one. There is so much to do, and there's always fresh things to try

Such a fun place to release my kiddo to play. He has a ball. Only downside is how busy it can be. If you have an energetic, kid, take them here and let them have fun.

This is a great place to spend a few hours. My children get to use their imaginations in many ways. The outdoor area is awesome with lots for the kids to do. This place offers a multitude of events and is a must see/play for families. The food area is sufficient with a handful of options.

Our toddler enjoys the Museum so much! Everything really is hands on and a great opportunity for kids to learn different skills, build with different materials and experience things that can be difficult to duplicate at home. We enjoy the lazy stream outside which anyone can use without a pass to the museum. They have preschool options, parenting classes and parent's night out, and lots more.

I think you may have mistaken us for the Hands On Children's Museum in Jacksonville, FL. We are separate and independent of the museum in Jacksonville, Florida.

Our facility and programs welcome all families and our membership packages support foster families, grandparents, single parent households, and two-adult households of any type.

Please learn more about us and our programs at

I'll never take my grand-kids here. I teach them to fight bigotry in all of its forms.
