All the areas that you hear about related to Adventures in Odyssee (sp?) can be experienced there. Met friends there who have little ones and they thoroughly enjoyed it. Check out the slide and Whit's End. The rooms are also wonderful, especially the Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe room.

My children grew up loving Adventures in Odessey. Visiting here was like going back to the future. An incredible place!

They offered tours that allowed us to walk through the facility. Unless you are going on a free tour, you are not allowed to walk the beautiful wooden stairs to view the main headquarters. We were able to see a radio recording in progress while sitting in this room with a one way glass window. We learned about all of... More

There are things to see/do for the whole family. Complete with a movie theater, bookstore, and two-story slide. A great place to learn about the Focus on the Family ministry and more.

Went on a weekday right when it opened so had it to ourselves for a little while. Our family enjoyed to videos on the history of the organization and Jim Daly's testimony. Bookstore had about any resource you can imagine. Kids highlight was the play area, with maybe a dozen interactive activities and/or slides. The multistory slide was closed while... More

We enjoyed coming back to visit the welcome center. The bookstore has a sale a couple times a year and we stock up on all our resources that are appropriate for the family. Historic place for Dr Dobsen and his mission for families and children

This would be great for kids ages 3 to 8. My teenagers were a bit bored and wanted to leave. It was nice that it was free.

Amazing book store. Great tours. Large campus. Call ahead. Friendly Staff. Get a map of the campus. See the statue of Dr. Dobson's father.

We visit about every few months and I have 3 kids (4, 7, & 8). They love to run around and explore the indoor play area. There is enough to keep them busy and entertained. They have a scavenger hunt, indoor slide, play area, video room, and a puppet theatre just to name a few. In the summer there are... More

My two year old was thrilled. I was too, the play area takes you away to a beautiful discovery zone. The Welcome Center is informative and shares the Christian faith... But with a two year old we really couldn't stop and read much. We did manage to stop at book store. Great selection and they offer only active duty military... More
