Interesting exhibits with something for kids of any walking age. We will definitely be going back. The place was clean and organized. I loved that they had a special place for children under 4 where I could take my toddler to play while I nursed my baby and not have to worry about him struggling with older kids. The splash pad is fun, but you may want to bring your own water toys. My son's favorite things were the fishing, fire trucks, and car maintenance. Next time, I definitely want to try the green screen, FedEx plane, and Kroger store! This place is definitely worth the admittance fee (which can go towards a membership)!

Museum itself was good. Plenty of exhibits both inside and outside. Pricing was a tad on the high side. $20/person for museum and splashpad and the adults don't play in any of it. Seemed high but maybe I'm sheltered. The staff wasn't full on rude but there was an air of absolute minimum. In short, it was a good day but not great enough to go five star. Cheaper or nicer would nudge it up.

We took our 2 children here for the first time and we couldn't be more satisfied with this museum. It has so many things and themes to cater to a lot of different ages of children. They have a special section for kids 4 and below. The splash pad is awesome. Kids of all ages love it. The carousel is good too if you like that sort of thing. My recommendation would be to get the membership since that comes out to be more economical.

This place was wonderful, but very pricey and also doesn’t offer a military discount. It was 15 dollars per a person despite age for general admission, the carousel and the splash park are additional to the general admission. If you go more than once I would encourage to get a membership. It has a plethora of options for the kids to choose from and a space for the toddlers to escape to as well. The carousel was 3 dollars per person and the ride was pretty short, it is a one time deal so you would pay for each ride which also kind of sucked because our 2 yo really enjoyed it. Overall it was a great experience I just wish that it had more of a pkg deal instead of each individual cost including parking.

I have such fond memories of this place from when I was a child. And now I get to take my own daughter here and she always has fun. Theres a wide variety of activities for kids of all ages. The facility is generally pretty clean (some of the toys etc could stand to be replaced, but nothing looks awful) and the staff is helpful. The exhibits encourage interaction and imagination, which is such a wonderful thing for young minds. A great place to spend an afternoon with your family.
