What a wonderful learning environment for kids! There are many indoor exhibits - painting on glass, building toys, a grain elevator, career exhibits and a magnificent outdoor area that includes tricycles, a stream and pond, a music garden, plus many more things. The kids love going there and playing and learning during the offered classes.
