Good: The space is wonderful. My daughter loves it there and asks to go nearly daily. The staff are wonderfully considerate and helpful. It is a great place to take children and their new facility is just awesome. They are planning on a roof top exhibit in the future.. Bad: You not suppose to bring coffee in; which for me, my child could spend the entire day there, so it would be nice to have a beverage. ;-) I also wish they had an a contracted baby sitter service that could play with your kids while you get some shopping done. I'm sure that is against some law or code though.. Improvements: I'd like to see the roof top exhibit come into realitiy for them. There has also been talk about expanded the facility to make room for more attractions. I also heard that there is talks to collaborate with a local technology company, I think Computer Source to bring about a high tech science exhibit.. Other: People reading reviews of this facility need to keep in mind that the Children's Museum of Skagit County had an entirely new facility created for them at the Skagit Mall, which the space is being leased to them for $1 a year. Their new space is wonderful and they have so many new attractions over what may have been there before in their Mt. Vernon location. If you haven't visited them in their new location you really need to..
