I visited the museum with my 3 year old and 7 month old. The 3 year old had a blast and the 7 month old had fun people watching. Definitely worth a visit.

...but kids honestly do adore this place. When I first saw it, the appeal completely eluded me UNTIL I returned with the grandkids years later. Doesn't matter how many times they go, they ALWAYS love it! Find a place to park yourself because kids will spend more time than you'd have thought humanly possible exploring the train room, Lego room,... More

There are several fun areas in this little museum. It can get crowded but the kids really enjoy it and ask to go often.

I like the location, in the mall by the ice rink. The staff playing and working here seem to do a good job. Very good stations for young kids. Needs to update and renew some of its items, things are becoming worn out.

My grandsons came to visit and this was an excellent destination to visit with them. We flew planes, operated a pizza restaurant, farmed, and built and raced cars. We all had a great time. It was one of the highlights of their visit to Iowa. We built some lasting memories here (and Lego creations too!)

This is a great place for kids to explore, learn, experiment. Even big kids (liked grandparents) will enjoy it.

My youngest children are 2 and 4 and this place is perfect for them. They can typically spend 3 hours here just going from one thing to the next...there is so much to do!
