This place is great. It's like a smaller Please Touch Museum. It's very clean (even though we ended up bringing home a cold :/) They offer birthday parties, facility rentals. All the info is right on their website. I have personally been to one. It was neat, the girls voice in that tiny room was like daggers... Gift shop is cute and reasonably priced. They have a neat 99ยข rack with color changing pencils, sharpeners and other little things. There's a small restaurant inside. We've never been to it, but it smells amazing. I also truly appreciate the fact they employee people with disabilities and those employees truly care about your experience there! There is also a bag/coat check there if that's your thing.

This place was great!!! We had 2 four year old twin girls & a 2 year old boy & they were enchanted!!!! We went mid-week & it was not too crowded at all. We spent about 3-4 hours & saw all the exhibits. It was educational & fun wrapped up in a great day. I highly recommend this place 4 anyone with young kids.

Great place for young children. Staff is friendly. Dinosaur room is a favorite. Also the area where you can play hockey and basketball. The room for babies/toddlers is great too and a haven if you have really little ones. The only reason I'm giving 4 instead of 5 is that I find parts of the inside to be kind of dark and gloomy. It needs brighter lighting to cheer up the place...and a deep cleaning in areas. Also, if you happen to be there when school groups are gets crowded and loud. Try to visit at off times for the best experience. Overall good - we have been members for a few years for 2 kids.

Attended a birthday party here. The staff were extremely friendly, very organized with several activities for the party itself and free reign of the play floor. The staff was quick to help when the staff area was not working, even when the person who helped was leaving for the day (off the clock). I will definately bring my children here again.

My grandson age 4 and my 18 year old daughter loves it. It was a rainy day so we decided to check it out. Total of 6 of us went. It was nice and a lot to see and do.
