A welcoming and shaded outdoor play space makes this smallish childrens museum shine. Both indoor and outdoor activities are varied and well maintained, with plenty of things for all ages to do. Activities include water play areas, a climbing zone, attended crafts and a face painting area. There is also a small gift shop and a few vending machines, but no cafe. Bring your own food for a picnic outdoors.
