I am specifically reviewing their toddler and small child friendliness.
we had lunch at the picnic table outside in the shade. it was super nice. pack all your trash, there are no garbage cans outside the museum. there is one once you enter.
we pottied in the back of the car so we brought in no bags and I could have my hands free. good thing, no large bags allowed.
they ask you hold their hand the whole time.... (what.) so I asked exactly where the interactive exhibit was and B lined to it. the first thing he saw was scissors and no other activity looked as intriguing, even to me. so we spent 20 gleeful minutes learning to cut paper firefighters.
several exhibits are very language and concept driven, so be prepared to lecture. I thought it'd all be a little too abstract for my 2 year old who hasn't gotten to the "why" stage yet, so I skipped a lot of it. I also found a lot of activities that seemed welcoming, only to read sentences of rules once we arrived at it. (one such pictured).
the simplest exhibits were the best imo. stop drop and roll was fun. it's just a little carpet with a hard low boundary and a little leather vest they can put on. Also in the back there are 4 firetrucks they can climb into and pretend play. but like you know, make sure they don't touch the outside. 😑
bathrooms are good, boys room with a ground urinal, but no low sink or steps to get up to the sink independently.
This place seems great for older children practicing their compliance skills, who are not in peak exploratory phase. The place isn't terribly accommodating for neurodiverse abilities, so you'll want to leave at the first signs of them beginning to get frustrated.
