Anything else helpful to know?
I think it is helpful to know that this is a temporary museum experience created with children and art lovers in mind. No giant bubble machines or indoor climbing equipment found here. It is a slow living experience full of opportunities to investigate, create, read aloud, and explore. It is best experienced with an adult, parent, mentor, etc. to help guide the experience with intention.

Additional information:
Restroom and water available. Nursing moms welcome anywhere, private room available too.
