    We absolutely love this place.
    I agree with previous reviewers that it should be called activity center and not museum but that makes it so much better! We are spending all day here with a 2, 4 and 12 year old and nobody is getting bored.
    You just let them run free and enjoy a day of exploring and not having to say no to anything.
    Staff plays with the kids and is nice and helpful.
    It may not be sparkly clean but that surely didn't bother the kids.
    We will be back on a regular basis

    Well I did read the reviews, but didn't listen. Then when we pulled in I should have listened to my gut, but again didn't. Small, cramped, smelly, dirty, are a few words to describe this place. Also if you do not head these posts, as I chose not to, and decide to go, DO NOT USE THE BATHROOMS! At least the kids liked it, but there is not enough hand sanitizer in the world to make me want to go back.
