I was really impressed with this children's museum. We met my friend and her kids there for the day and the kids had a blast. Picture a very large room tastefully filled with at least a dozen play areas such as a vet office, post office, fire engine, a house, a huge bridge, and much more. There were several benches...

We made a stop here with my 6 year old and 1 year old - both had a blast!

The outside play and exploration area was a... More

I took my five year old granddaughter to visit the museum. She could have spent the whole day there. The activities were endless. There was a shoe store where she measured feet and tried on shoes. The next stop was the pizza parlor where she pretended to make pizza, bake it in the oven, then serve it to me while... More

This was my families favorite place that we visited in the quad cities! The staff here are wonderful! They have an area where you can build with real tools! My kids spent hours in there making creation after creation! We had so many creations that the staff got me a box to carry everything in! My daughter gave the front... More

This place was LOVED by my young children (under 8) We spend about 3 hours playing house and store and firemen and they would have loved to have stayed longer!

My children enjoyed this place when we visited the area when they were younger but age 10 is where the magic wears thin. If older preschoolers are involved it is great.
