  • My family visited the museum on 8/10 and 8/11 and my kids loved the place. Police car, fire truck, helicopter, ambulance were my son’s favorite. I highly recommend this museum to families with...  more »

  • The museum itself is spectacular, but I wanted to take a moment to honor two parts of the organization that don't often get mentioned. First, the preschool is one of the best I've ever seen -- teachers Kitty and Natasha in particular are kind, warm, attentive, and in touch with the little ones. Every day is a fresh challenge in a crowded and crazy museum, but they make it feel like home to the kids -- the most stimulating and exciting but safe and secure home a little kid could ever dream of. They are both wonderful at their jobs and deserve all the recognition they could ever get. Secondly, the staff at the cafe are uniformly friendly, competent, and sweet and approachable to the kids. They bring legitimate cheer and excellent energy to their interactions with the kids, and the meals are healthy, tasty, and well prepared and thoughtfully balanced. This organization is such a gift to the Olympia area on so many levels.
  • This is one of our favorite places and my children want to live here when they're adults (since we currently drive 2 hours to meet Nana here). The staff is helpful, the opportunities for play are amazing, and things like food and potties are convenient. Parking on the street is cheaper than their lot, and it can be irritating to move your car if you stay that long, but I do it anyway.
