Rave Reviews

Great distraction for small children. There’s not enough for older kids, but for 5-and under it’s a very nicely kept little museum with some neat hands-on exhibits and puzzles. We loved the beehive! For the long drive with the under 5 set from NY to Cape Cod, this is a perfect spot to stop for a couple hours. Nice ice cream afterwards up the street.
