The Focus on the Family Welcome Center has several parts to it. First is a museum that tells the history of the organization and its various ministries. There are several exhibits and brief films. It was okay, but nothing exceptional. There is also a huge bookstore that is quite impressive. There is a soda shop that we planned to visit,... More

This was my second visit the earlier was many years before. This is a wonderful and fun place to spend time. It has fun for the entire family young and old. A three story slide, and old fashioned soda shop, an area to dress up and get on stage. This is absolutely a must. You won't be disappointed.

We had a blast and plan on going back again and again. They are Friendly and the place is clean. The pizza is so good. Crust is the best part. Lots to do for kids. They were wore out.

We'd been listening to the Adventures in Odyssey CD's for weeks in anticipation of our visit, and we weren't disappointed! This was a fun stop for our whole family and a nice respite from the summer afternoon heat. We enjoyed ice cream at Whit's End, and the kids had a blast on the slide and exploring the children's area in... More

These days, security is everywhere, including Focus on the Family. At the Welcome Center, however, young women who were MADE for that job, warmly greeted our party of three (without any children). We did a quick online registration, got our name tags and off we went. Honestly, if I lived in CO Springs with young children, I'd be there every... More

Had a great time visiting Focus on the Family. If you have kids you really want to go, the basement area is like an amusement park for them, everyone was having a fantastic time

Love the bookstore and could stay there for hours. Granddaughter spent lots of time in the kids area. A must stop if you are in the area. Beautiful setting and grounds. Friendly, kind people. Take time for lunch there or ice cream.

I was at Focus on the Family for a conference, and thoroughly enjoyed it! The campus is beautiful, the people in the welcome center were helpful and friendly, and I loved the bookstore! There are play areas for children, including a 3 story slide, which is so much fun (even for adults!) Would definitely come back anytime I was in... More

This is a wonderful, free (unless you visit the bookstore and then you're on your own!) place to bring young children--play, slide, watch movies, read. Great place for birthday parties! Fun snack bar type restaurant (perfect for after-play treats). A great place to visit and to bring visiting family with small children. Older children aren't going to find much to... More
