This is a great place to take kids. They do need to make some repairs, but for the most part it is a great experience!

Great place to take young children in elementary school kids. Very interactive activities for little hands to keep them active in their minds engaged

The kids had a blast with all the items to do. However it was not very organized and most of the paper/pencils/color crayons where missing from the areas that needed it for the activity. Thankfully I always have those items in my purse.

A must see for anyone with children or grandchildren. The kids are allowed to handle exhibits and build exciting things in the think shop.

I do not believe that they have food either. I've been there a few times and we have never noticed it if they did! However, they have a wonderful outdoor area and you can bring a picnic lunch with you.

Yes. There is a new Hotel next to the I-74 bridge on Middle Rd, I think it's a Hilton, looks nice.
