    They have a delightful puppet theater with several shows a day. It's not well advertised at the museum but the shows are always a hit with the kids. They're worth 30 mins of your time while there.

    Great place for kids 6 months to 7 years. As your child discovers look for the exhibits of retro toys all around to bring back your childhood. Marcia Marcia Marcia.

    The kids had so fun

    Pro Tip: Buy a hard hat at the gift shop on the way in so when the kid gets to the block processing area, the random throws don't end up bonking them in the beezer. Also useful at rocket launches.

    We've been here for 4hrs and boys are showing no interest in leaving. Especially great for children 3-8.

    Always look down to make sure you're not walking into any kids. Never move back suddenly, even if a kid is running straight at you. That kid will see you, the one you back into won't.

    Most of the employees here seem like they hate their jobs. Not very kind to the kids. There were a few exceptions.

    Lots of stuff for toddlers and big kids. And retro toys on display from the 70s and 80s to entertain patents. A really good museum and a good place to spend several hours.
