This museum has plenty to keep kids of all ages and interests busy. There is a play area for babies and toddlers, a construction area with a 3 story slide (entrance and exit are locked when staff is not on duty), a play kitchen, a milk prouction display, and a model train. They have storytimes and a craft room. In addition, they host travelling exhibits which change 3-4 times a year.

We loved this trip. It is so much fun, and is great for all ages. I love that they have a safe area for younger childen that is seperate from the big kids. Of course it has some great educational opportunities and different areas of play. My daughter had a great time in the craft area and keeps asking to go again. I love that they also offer birthday party opportunities as well. I also like the safety features they provide by keeping the entrance and exits seperate from the areas where the children play. Overall a great time and very much worth driving downtown. :)
