Fun for the kids, but not what I thought it would be looking at the website. The word museum made me think of something totally different. It's basically a place where the kids can come play and burn off some energy. Not happy it paid $28 for a play house.

There are two kinds of people who love this place, toddlers and individuals who are boat and navy seal obsessed. Unfortunately my 5 year olds were only mildly interested. $21 for 3 people and we stayed for about 40 minutes. Will I go again, probably not. Did my kids have fun, a little. Did the learn something new, possibly. But I could get a free library book and accomplish the same l goals. I wanted to like this place.

Some of the kids that were there weren't very respectful for younger children and pushed them out of the way but there are plenty of other things to do for kids. Our 2 year old loved everything that there is to do.

The kids really enjoyed the water table, it's a small place across from the bay, they have different things for the lol 1's to play with. Don't worry about them running around out of control, that's what this place is for.
