We had an absolutely amazing time here. At first, we were not sure if our kids would engage. The "backyard" is great and our kids had a fun time there, but we finally got them really interested in the giant sized tinker toys. Our son built a monstrosity! We got all of our moneys worth out of building things and... More

We took my niece there and everyone - especially my one year old niece - had a great time. It offers something for a wide range of age groups and event he adults have fun watching and playing too

I've taken children of all ages to this museum. The preschoolers love Biscuit's Backyard where they can play at a giant water table, "dig" potatoes or pull ears of corn from the garden, check under the sitting hens for eggs, pretend to mild the cow, play in the barn, explore the secret hiding places in the fort, play shop keeper...

Liked the interactiveness of the exhibits and found it rather entertaining while with my grandkids ages 9 and 11 - they might have been a bit old to really get the most out of it, but they made 3 hours fly by us pretty fast - so, I do recommend this for the little ones.

This is a very good museum for children with much hands on. Some large gatherings are also held there.

My grandchild loved her day here! Several activities called her back time and again. The costumes and hands-on activities kept her engaged, curious, and busy for three hours! Quite a feat in this day and time.

The Children's Museum was so cute! A don't-miss spot for anyone with young children. Allow at least 2 hours.

The good thing about this place is that your ticket includes the Huntsville Train Museum and Constitution park. We went to the train station and it was top knotch! Very cool. This place was ok but could do with more variety we didn't stay very long.

I think this place offers some great experience to our younger generation. Best for ages 8 and under. My granddaughter was outgrowing by age eight. She still wanted to go, but they really didn't have anything for her past that age at the time. She dressed her Grandpaw up like Daniel Boone and got to feed him at the table...fake... More

Our little girl totally enjoyed this place and we will be returning on our next trip to Huntsville. It is a great place for the kids to learn through play. It was a very fun.
