Very Educational and good for children to interact and role play for future occupations. We liked the mini TV studio the best :)

We love all the attractions there and the workers are super nice. The summer day camps are great too. It's a fun place for kids and adults.

Very good time with my 5 year old and 2 year old. They had a blast all day long. Disappointing that the Quack Factory always has something not working when we go, but with the most recent added exhibits, I can accept. Not anything like the children's museum in Indiapolis, but a good place local musuem for the residents of... More

I finally had the opportunity to visit the Children's museum of Evansville! I found that it was a place the children thoroughly enjoyed with such a good variety of learning and fun activities in various rooms. After visiting that first time, I continued to take them several more times and they had just as much fun at each of our... More

We just visited you today with our 15 month old daughter and I thought the exhibits were wonderful. Even with her being much younger than most of the other children there was plenty for her to do and explore new things.

We've taken our daughter here on two separate occasions that were two years apart. The first time, my daughter had a great time but the second time, it hadn't seemed like anything had changed so she wasn't as excited. We would definitely go back if they come up with some different activities though.

I have a 3 and 5 year old. Yes not everything worked, but it is continuously being played it and things break.. just like at your own house. There were not issues with bathrooms being clean or smelling when we were visiting. There are a lot of different hands on activities and from living close to STL the payment to... More

It was not kept up. Several exhibits didn't work. The bathrooms smelled strongly if urine and were out of soap in some and paper towels in others. I was far from impressed. My five year old enjoyed it but I did not. However, I will say the staff was very friendly. The girl at the counter when asked about nearby... More

Our children enjoyed this small little gem. If we had paid full price we may have been disappointed, but we utilized a travel Indiana family package that gave us 2 free tickets. Our boys really enjoyed all the hands on exhibits.

After spending many days at the Indianapolis Children's Museum, I didn't think CMOE had much chance of comparing. To be sure, Cmoe is much smaller and in earlier stages of developing, but it is a legit Children's Museum and several steps beyond the science-lab-in-a-room children's museums you often see in smaller cities. The building itself is gorgeous and interesting, and... More
