After hearing about this I decided to visit INK with my daughter who is 7. We walked In and it looked great (you walk into the gift shop area). After paying a reasonable price of $8 a person . we started walking through the learning area. This is where my experience went bad. This place is dirty and the items on display and for the children use are either broken or filthy. I honestly question the amount of cleaning and sanitizing that is done. This place has so much potential to be what it is meant to be which is a fantastic concept. But I wont return and my daughter even said "dad I Dont want to touch that is very dirty" we spent 20 minutes walking around but the lack of cleanliness forced our hand to leave. As I was walking out I asked the front desk lady how often the place is sanitized and cleaned and also how often they update the broken or missing objects. Her response was "we clean pretty often but its mainly like sweeping and mopping and we Dont replace much unless its dangerous" that sealed the deal for me. I saw over 100 kids in this place in the 20 minutes I was there and they were touching everything and it required much more than "sweeping and mopping".
If your in the area and looking for something for the kids to do then this is really the only option. On a road trip we stopped by with a 1 and 4 year old to get them out of the car. Its a huge place with tons of activities for the kids from a full mini neighborhood with grocery store, bank, hair salon, dentist, dinner, etc.. There is an indoor gym and blocks and a ceramic studio that I think is an additional cost. Its such a great idea but the place is SUPER dated and quite frankly very dirty. I was so grossed out I just couldnt see past it. My kids had a great time cuz they dont see those things but for the price they need to do better. If u have nothing else to do and u arent concerned with cost then head on over. If u have anything else u can do I would say skip it.
Made a special trip there on our way home and I do plan to go back and give it a real shot sometime, but today just wasnt it. Parked and immediately there were older kids in education tshirts (I was told they were a fieldtrip group) walking through the lot outside talking loud & cussing. I go in and no one greets us & the mood in there was very somber. I called earlier and was under the impression it was 2 & under free, but its under 2- my bad. I mention the cussing and am informed that is no reflection on them by the not so welcoming blonde lady. Just didnt feel compelled to swipe my card so we left.

Es un lugar genial para que los niños jueguen y a la vez aprendan, ya que recrean un pueblo con veterinario, peluquería, café, supermercado, granja entre otros cada uno con juguetes con los que pueden recrear lo que los adultos hacen en esas profesiones.
This place was AWESOME!!!!! the kiddos had a blast and its a great way for them to use their imagination its also good price we will definitely be back !!!!! Theres a grocery store and a bank a hair salon and a vet and dentist and drs and an x-ray area and a stage where they dress up and pretend their on Broadway also farm an airplane a police car and a fire truck theres loads of stuff and theres a little playland too
I have four kids ages 6 to 12 and they all loved playing at Ink this weekend. Theres something for everyone and they truly learned how various businesses operate and even got to play role-play and each one of the centers such as hairdresser, Banker, grocery store, eatery, veterinarian, theater, police, huge building block area and much more. We are getting a family membership and cant wait to go back
Great beginning of the summer road trip. Quiet (but not too) on a beautiful Thursday late May. This "museum" is certainly not boring and not only did the kids (3&6) get to use their imaginations, and explore, but they also made new friends. Our top choice for neighborhoods, the grocery store with a beeping scanner, shopping carts and plenty of things to buy. CF&M recommend!

We visited some family in Gainesville and took our 4 year old here. She loved it so much we went back twice! For those saying its dated, yes it is. So? The kids dont give a hoot. We went for her sake, not ours. They had tons of places for parents to sit while the kids entertain themselves. We had a BLAST and will definitely be back!
Little one loved it but the place needs a serious makeover. Its smelly and outdated. Younwoyld ghink that with $100 membership fees they could update all the activity rooms. Seems like most of the toys and props are donating anyway. Regardless, the place has potential to be great again now as Im sure was amazing when its doors first opened.
Awesome museum, just wish that had "Member Only" days because the place is a nightmare when they have field trips from schools and daycares which ends up being all the time during the week, and of course the weekends are always busy. So there is never really a good time to go because you never know when massive groups will be there.
Great hands on fun for the children. Came with children ranging from two to ten and they all enjoyed it. Something for everyone. Try not to run through it. Take your time and enjoy each area with your kids, that is really fun. Bring friends. The more the merrier.
Best place ever!! This museum captivates your childs imagination! Hands down so much happy entertainment for such a small amount of money. Love this place!!!!
We went for a field trip with Gwinnett county. Kids loved it. Price was good but not something wed come back to anyone soon. Everything looked very dated
We took our 20 month old here and had a blast. The airplane, cop car and fire truck were his favorite things. He wore himself out
Wonderful experience with my grand daughter. We will definitely go back...bring your lunch and plan to spend several hours...
Great place to bring the kids. It will entertain them for hours and it is not very expensive.
My kids had a blast! I even had fun! Educational and fun? Wish more places like this existed+
The kids love to come here. Nice and clean place for them to play
Very outdated, seems this place had its heyday 15 years ago.
Very nice and decently priced. We spent hours here.
