  • Spread across four floors, the museum has many little sections for kids to explore, perfect for young minds with short attention spans. The museum has plenty of hands-on activities. I was impressed...  more »

  • Great place for kids to play/learn and adults to enjoy being parents. Plan to spend several hours here. There is enough to occupy your child all day. Parking is insane. But you get 50 percent off at the deck near by if you validate. Such fun!
  • I went with my 2 year old daughter today. First of all we are from CT and have 5 different children’s museums within 20-40 minutes of us so we have a lot to compare it to. First problem is parking. There is no actual parking at the museum so we wound up down the road in a parking garage since the garage closest was full. The place is very small and crowded when there are a lot of people there it is hard to move around. The air quality was horrible. The ac either doesn’t work or they don’t know how to use it. Everyone was sweating and complaining about how hot and uncomfortable it was. There is no food or water available unless you bring you own. Even our smallest museum at home sells applesauce, juice, water, coffee. The exhibits were comparable to some places we have been. She did have a good time which is what I wanted but we would have stayed longer had it not been unbearably hot there.
