Great place to spend time with young children

Located near the high school this kids "museum" has lots of fun hands on things for young children. Has train table, magnets, large blocks. A wonderful rainy day activity.

Our grandchildren enjoyed all the many hands on exhibits from the large train track to the plane and the outside exploration. They were able to put on rain boots and splash in small creeks. Great fun.

This place has a ton of fun things for such a small operation. My son loves the indoor play set as well as the real airplane to check out. However, the best part is the outdoor items such as play pond, sand box and musical items built from metal which all are way less used than the indoor items. If... More

I really love Kid Zone. I have taken my son here for years & he enjoys the art area, themed play area (sometimes it's under the sea, sometimes it's aviation, etc.), indoor playground, train table, magnets & oversized blocks. It's been a LIFESAVER in the cold, snowy months when you've got to get your child out of the house to... More

Perfect spot to have fun with your kids. They have an art room, play room, slide/climbing structure and tons for your kids to do. It's a perfect place to bring your kids during bad weather. Very fun and entertaining. My kids love it!!

I took my 3 year old daughter here on a day the older kids were skiing. It is not huge, but the space is used very well with many different stations. It easily kept my daughter busy for 2+ hours and she didn't even really play with all that is available. The price is average to get in (I think... More

There isn't much discovery going on inside at least. More of a preschool kiddies soft play area. It's got done interesting things in there, but I think it's a bit overpriced at $8 per person of any age. It's good for about 1.5hrs of play for 2-6 year olds.

Family Camp at Sagehen is a blast, with natural history education, fun activities and camping in the middle of an Experimental Forest.
