  • This is a wonderful magical place for children to put their hands on everything and explore a world built for their joy! Parking cost $7 fixed rate as of the time of this writing. Parking seemed fairly safe despite several homeless camps around the parking area. There's a place inside the store strollers. And a neat water playing area. However your kid will probably get very wet so having to change of clothes is a good idea.
  • So much to see and explore! We’ve been here twice. Once when my oldest was a toddler and twins were crawling. And this second time my son is older and twins are preschoolers. And with these trips I noticed that this museum is best for younger kids 7 and under, but the older kids can still find something to enjoy. The baby crawl area on the second floor is my favorite! I was able to let my babies crawl around and explore in a safe space. The outdoor backyard is a lot of fun too, my kids were excited about the garden and the strawberries that were growing in it. Each area is a ton of fun and there are so many learning opportunities to be had with your kids here. I like to sit back and let them play in each area for a while. Bring water and snacks! There is no food court probably because of COVID, but there are water bottle refill stations. I saw lots of shirtless kids because they got too wet in the water play area lol so an extra set of clothes is a good idea.
