    I have only been here for a work event. We did a team-building event. They took a kid's building area and made a really fun adult team building place. We were set up in teams and had to build a structure using items they have in the area. There was also food and drinks. It was a very unique and fun experience. we had time to look around the majority of the museum and it would be really fun for families to visit during the normal hours.

    We enjoyed our visit here even though it's set up more for children. We particularly loved the butterfly exhibit in The Judy Istock Butterfly Haven. They release a bunch of new ones every day at 2:00 pm. Spectacular!

    This is the first time we have discovered a childrens play area and my daughter was delighted. It is only a short walk from terminal 2, there is plenty there to keep them entertained for at least an hour. I would have rated this as a 5 star, but quite a few of the interactive buttons were not working. It is conveinently located between Mac and a bar, so Dad got a beer and sat beside the play area while i popped into Mac, happy family!

    The museum curator didn't start off so warm and fuzzy. But by the time we left she had redeemed herself. It's a great little museum with hands on activities your little will love. It's available for parties but only ages 3-9. Free parking and only $5 pp.
