I've now been to my share of children's museums. This one has an incredible lay-out. It's a huge warehouse so parents can almost see end-to-end, a huge plus for toddler/preschoolers.
The areas were engaging. No joke, my three-year-old played with an air pressure game for an hour. We also liked the treehouse/pirate ship/reading nook, the cafe, and the Wild West area. This museum has a huge craft section in the middle of the room with lots of fun supplies.
As someone mentioned it is a cell-phone free zone. I used mine to take a couple of photos and that was it. Luckily, museums make for happy kids.
Also, at $6 per person, I thought it was a great value!
At first glance this "museum" looks very small -- it is really more like many play areas all shoved under one roof. But when you get started playing you see how much there really is. My boys played for at least 5 hours. I had to make them leave! Even my 10 year old had a blast crafting, building and imagining, yet it was not too old for my 3 year old. Be fore-warned : This museum asks adults to keep cell phones off and spend time playing. I was exhausted!
More than thirty-five activities with eleven permanent exhibits and many rotating displays means you’ll always find something fun for kids of all ages. Favorites include Shark Tank, Shipwreck, Fish Market, First 5 Garden Infant Playground, Creation Station, andplush “cowches” to rest and relax upon.
