  • So fun. So much to do. Okay, the kids liked it too. Lots of antique toys. Buttons to push.. Hands on exhibits, and the old train from the Madison Incline Railroad.

  • I took my 9 year old and 5 year old and we stayed from open to close and still had things we didn't get to do. The outside sports area is amazing. They had so much fun they wanted to return the following day. Parking was free, food was a little pricey but was as expected. You can bring your own inside the dining area. The place was clean and employees were so friendly.
  • Great place for fun, education, culture, and art. Great for kids. I really appreciated the kid-friendly exhibits that are low to the ground, and the kid-friendly bathrooms. The main downside is, since it's so popular, it can be packed and noisy. I mean, it was hard to talk to the person next to me, and at times I couldn't think straight. It's so huge, we didn't even do all the indoor stuff in one day.
