I really enjoyed this little children's museum. Everything is on one floor, so it is a little bit easier to watch the kids, even though they can still disappear on you.

Lots of your usual children's museum type activities. Train table, store with groceries, post office, restaurant, etc. They had some stairs the kids could go up and crawl across a bridge. There is the back end of a real cop car and a real ambulance they can get in and and look around. There is a little toddler area and lots of other items to numerous to mention.

Additionaly to this, they just built an outside playground area that is fenced in that looks like it will be fun the next time that we go.

They also have a water room that they can go in with adult, not sure the age on it. It was in poor shape and needs alot of work so not impressed with that part.

They do like it you pick up after yourself and it says that you are not to bring food in. We did anyway since I didn't want the kids to go too long without a snack.

We went on the last Thursday of the month for thrifty Thursdays so we didn't have to pay as much. It is a 45 min. drive for us to get there, so going on the cheaper day made for a perfect low cost day out for the kids.
