I'm giving the museum an excellent rating because it exists and the grandkids love it! I think some of the problems with broken/missing pieces at exhibits is the lack of supervision some children have.

There are so many exhibits that my kids never care if a few aren't working, and we especially love that there are so many areas even the little ones can enjoy!

The price is more than reasonable for the market, the staff is super friendly and helpful. The biggest seller for me, my daughter had a blast and wants to go back! So kudos to the staff, keep up the good work!

What a fun place to spend a winter afternoon! Great fun for all ages! I'm not sure but I think we had more fun than the 18 month old we took there!
