  • My daughter loved the kids area upstairs. She was running around for hours just exploring. We will definitely be coming back. The staff was super cool and helpful. The place was clean, well as clean as it could be with all those toddlers running around. I can’t stress how much fun she had though. Definitely worth the money.
  • Very disappointed. After a year of supposedly renovations, we revisited. Nothing had changed. Most everything is broken, missing parts or not working properly. It’s pathetic they charge 12 dollars a person. Someone needs to do a thorough walk through with notes and fix it up. Never again. The children’s museum in Jackson is much better.
