It is a GREAT place for 2 years old up to 17, especially on a rainy day. Not so sure about the 17 year old but it can be fun for all.
They offer classes (check schedule), story time, hands-on activities, art techniques, creative craft play, music, gardening club, a honey bee exhibit and more. Mrs. Q says: Our 5 year old grandson really enjoyed this museum. They have a new exhibit with a play kiln oven and pizza rest. play things – to make pizza, salads, a phone to take orders, etc. He did enjoy this museum.
