We enjoy visiting Quaint Corner. The exhibits on the second floor offer learning opportunities as well as an art studio room, while the third floor has areas for imaginative play (store, trains, vet clinic). The basement has a pirate ship and lots of sand.

My young adult friend and I used to like to go here. It was very interesting seeing actual Victorian bedroom suite and how it was smaller because people were shorter.
