The water play area was closed when we were there, but everything else in the museum kept my boys (4 & 8) entertained for almost 2 hours. Would definitely recommend for anyone with kids toddler to pre-teen.

If you have kids under the age of 9, this is a must-visit children's museum. Plenty of activities and photo ops, hands-on rotating exhibits and permanent fixtures like a water play center, rocket ship, theater and stage, TV studio, vet and doctor offices, treehouse, prairie dog holes, an airplane, semi cab, police motorcycle and more. Did I mention two face-painting stations? We've been to children's museums across the country and this is one of the best.
