We loved it but I could no longer recommend it because the location in Hlenview is now closed
They are closing in two weeks.
The drum room was a bit scary for the young kids.
everyone there was very friendly and helpful. and expect to get a bit messy!
It was great. My kids loved it!
The staff were were not very excited to be there...But worse was the supplies were pathetic! They had tables for my boys to sit and decorate a horse but the only supplies avail were markers and glue! The website pic showed paints etc! Disappointing.
It's pricey so if I had to pay full price I would definitely spend as much time there and get my kids good and tired before we left.
Based on the descriptions, I expected more involvement from the staff at Make-a-Messterpiece. My kids and I were left to do our own things, and it wasn't that easy to navigate.
The experience was a bit disappointing. The website is misleading. I actually expected there to be employees available to assist my child in making a "mess" but really it was just another opportunity for me to do art projects with my child and clean up. The drum room was a big waste - just some water and loud annoying music; it was unnecessary to put on all the recommended gear! On a positive note the employees were all friendly. We will not be going back.
Would only go there with a groupon otherwise would be a rip. Even though it is their messiest package there is still an area to up sell.
From Our Editors
The seasoned staffers at Make-A-Messterpiece nurture creativity and critical-thinking skills by guiding children up to aged 12 through messy hands-on activities. Aspiring chemists can mix their own concoctions at the Experimentation Station or explore gravity at the Bubbleology area, and future chefs can dabble in gastronomic delights at Creative Kitchen. Whereas Lil' Sprouts activities teach pint-sized crafters do-it-yourself projects, the custom-designed Drum Roll studio gives children the chance to splatter paint with each drumbeat, just like Carnegie Hall during renovation season. For little ones who would rather create aesthetic masterpieces, Splat-Tacular Tables furnish the tools they'll need to draw, paint, sculpt, or decorate their own creations.
Make-A-Messterpiece also goes beyond everyday activities to host school field trips and children's birthday parties with artistic activities, food, and goodie bags. For frequent messmakers, the center offers family memberships replete with perks such as everyday access to the studio, discounts on classes, VIP passes for special events, and consultations with Jackson Pollock's ghost.
