"I am a nanny and this place has always been highly recommended! I was impressed with how big it was and the huge amount of interaction you could have with everything. I took my kids there as a spring break activity and it def wore them out! A little busy though so make sure your kids are wearing bright clothes or have a talk with them befor you go"

Wonderful

"My two boys try to tear me in two when we go here! Its "mommy look!", "mommy, watch me!", and "this way mommy!" the whole time we are there! There are too many activities to mention for kids crawling age up to 5 years old. Books, blocks, dress-up clothes, grocery, mail room, washing area and many many more. AND ITS FREE!!! I would recommend this place to anyone!"

Fun place to explore

"I took my son to Storyville when he was a little younger than 2. He is all about manipulating things, transferring, etc. So when we walked into the space he immediately engaged in the seaside area "fishing" and working with puzzles. The supermarket was also a great hit as he collected fruit and veggies to "purchase". Now that he is 2 1/2 I think he will get a lot more out of it, so I am planning a trip back. I would absolutely recommend a visit. A very unique an fun space."
