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.

The place is in neat of cleaning. Odd construction at the steps. Bathroom has a door for part of the wall and you can hear everything. The basement had an odd smell. This place was a major disappointment.
