We drove to Colorado for the purpose of visiting FOTF and their Adventures in Odyssey exhibits. It did not disappoint. Elegant facility. So much for our kids (14, 12, 10, 9, 5, & 2) to do. Grabbed ice cream snacks at Whit's End. Spent a long while in the huge book store. Would highly recommend.

My wife and I listen to their programming on the radio and we're (including our kids) are fans of Adventures in Odyssey so this was a no brainer since we were in the area. The center gives you an overview of how the ministry started and is nicely presented. The book store had plenty of material and the Odyssey inspired... More

The gift/book shop is impressive in size. If you're looking for a Christian-themed gift (or regular gift, especially for a woman), this is the place. Obvious choices are Bibles and accessories, but there are also items such as scarves, purses and home decor that even an agnostic might appreciate. Great selection of books for every age, including Bibles for the... More

We are fans and supporters of Focus on the Family, but couldn't imagine what a tour of an office building would be. We were pleasantly surprised at all we could learn of it's mission and facilities. It has a great place for children to play and explore, even making their own cd radio drama.

We decided to visit this place on our vacation for the simple fact that its free, but don't let the FREE make you think that its not fun. This place is a true fun and exciting place for kids. We ended up going back on the very next day since the kids loved it so much. It is clear that... More

Their are rooms for little ones to play in, according to their age, as well as a dress up area and a HUGE slide. They also have a snack shop where you can get snacks, drinks, or lunch (though it can be a bit pricey).

I was treated poorly from the moment I arrived, especially when they found out that I am a gay man! I'll never go back again! These people have no idea about Christianity, family, or Christ's love!

There was so much to do there! The highlight was the Kids Radio session where the kids can actually create their own radio adventure and keep the CD, not to mention the 3 story slide, movies, the little theatre, and Whit's End. A MUST VISIT...

Lovely setting and gracious people. The tables were situated so that the stage was easy to see,the sound system was very clear, the food was delicious. I would go back to attend another event there.
