My 3 year old grandson loved it! It's just the right size, and secured with only children and their adults, so that he could go from activity to activity, exploring and creating. He loved the activity with the museum staff and campers, making a tin foil boat and trying to float it. He's asked to go back several times, and I plan to to take him frequently.

Small museum with activities/options for kids of a variety ages (2 - 11, I'd say). I brought my 2 year old here and she loved it--the sensory room, rubber band wall, and giant color brite board were her favorite exhibits. It is small, as I said before, so if you're going just to look around then your visit will be over in about 30 minutes or so. Most of the exhibits are interactive though, so if your child loves hands-on activities, I could see them being kept occupied for hours. Overall a decent little museum, and it was nice to see that they were in the process of renovating and adding exhibits. Please note that they will not let you in if you do not have a child with you (this is for the safety of the kids).

This museum is small but has so many awesome exhibits. We started going when my son was around 2.5 and he loved the hands on displays even then, and as he gets older he can do more and more. He's 4 now and his favorite part is the building room!

Wonderful first time experience. Hands on kids activities kept the kids busy for hours. And the admittance price was unbelievably low!

Was alright. I have a toddler so she doesn't have much of an attention span. We usually manage to kill a couple of hours at children's museums but at this one we were all done and ready to leave in 30 mins. Small and some of the exhibits were geared towards olders kids. Saw a few birthday parties being held there.
