Children step inside a world where bubbles grow bigger than they are, where the forces of energy electrify and spark their imagination, where they can be a farmer, a banker, a scientist, and more! The Museum also includes the Lancaster Antique Toy and Train collection – an attraction for kids of all ages as well as a modernized Planetarium.
