  • There is a myriad of options for children of all ages to play here. A couple of times we felt lost going from section to sections, there are activities for kids ages 3-16. Families may need longer...

  • We are members went on Saturday ,don’t go on that day!!! My grand daughter was playing in sand I told 4 kids several times don’t throw the sand , they did not stop. Supervision should’ve been there in that area parents just let their kids go play and don’t watch them , Supervisor just said that that’s what you get on a busy day like that they have no Control !!! My husband has be member for several years to take the grand kids ,I get kids are there to have fun but have employees should check that type of area ! San that what you get on a busy day!
  • Fun Fun Fun! I my granddaughters ages 3, 9, 12. There was something to do for all of them. We spent over four hours at the museum and still wasn't able to see the entire museum. I paid the extra fee for us to visit the butterfly exhibit. Although we didn't stay long because of the amount of people in such a small space, it was worth the extra money. The restaurant was busy, but the line went fast! If you're visiting Rochester, I recommend you put this on your 'must-see' list
