Great for families

My 2 year old had a blast! It was the perfect activity for him to enjoy during the winter months, we will definitely be back!


A great place to spend the day. Pack a lunch and a spare set of clothes for the kiddos. Currently our one year old's favorite attraction is the water table. Some other fun activities include an interactive topographical map with magic sand, lots of tanks of local fish and turtles at children's eye view, and some fun pretend play spots: a big boat, farmer's market and kitchen area.


One-part lake aquarium, one-part children's science museum.
