Heard good things, but I thought dirty!

I had heard wonderful reviews about the Hands on Children's Museum!  I ended up meeting two other moms there and we took our small children (at the time they were between 1 and 2).  They were really only able to play with the toys in the back, but it was expensive to get in (in my opinion) and the building is so old!!  There is a musty smell and I wonder how often the toys get cleaned.  Especially the ones for the small ones (considering all they want to do at that age is put things in their mouth).  May be better and more worth the money for the older child, but I still won't go back!  Just to give you an idea....we didn't even want to change our children's diapers inside the museum!!  Bathrooms were older and musty too!

I like taking my daughter to the museum because she enjoys it.  It is a little expensive to go, because they charge parents admission also.  But the toddler area is chock full of fun toys, and provides a relatively safe and contained area for my 20-month-old to play in.  Other areas like the grocery store and fire truck are also fun for her.  In general, the museum is fun, but is a little rough and worn is some areas.  It could use a little updating, but my daughter does not seem to mind.
