I have loved this place since my brother brought me there in the mid-80s! It was so fun to bring my children for their first jaw-dropping visit to the store.

It is a wonderland of odds and ends and neat science stuff. Brought my 2 1/2 year old and he was mesmerized for more than an hour just looking around.
