We love this place! They have such great events! They bring in a great variety of exhibits! The kids love to play here! The staff are friendly and helpful! The snow exhibit in winter is always fun! We just visited Storyland. It was really fun for my toddler and my school aged boys! Sadly, I did notice many areas in need of repair.

I really like the staff. They really, seriously need to fix the escalator. That aside. I am glad they are around. They host shows, plays, they have classes occasionally. My kids love the little town play place. As we home school this is a prime resource. However, if there's a birthday party being hosted steer clear. Mad chaos. The staff are actually used to this and are glad to have help cleaning after the flood of unruly children leave. More people need to support this place.

Amazing exhibit for kids. They have interactive book exhibit to help kids learn to read. My grandson loves it. I can read him stories while he runs around and plays with the different book exhibits they have. I enjoy taking my grandson to the different exhibits and also the imagination place there to wher he can burn some energy on cold and wet days.
