Yes, it is a bunch of silly kid's stuff.... if you weren't prepared for that by the NAME of the place, then that is your fault. There are many stations for your child(ren) to learn about many things. The time before last when we went, we spent a long time playing on the theater stage. Last time we went it... More

We were here on a Thursday Mid July 2015. We are members of the children's museum where we live so we were able to take advantage of the reciprocal admission (half off). The desk staff were very nice and the museum is large with tons to do. It seemed to me to be very busy when we visited, there was... More

I had never been to a children's museum before. Incredible talent throughout! Jim Delaney did an INCREDIBLE job building the flight simulators. Don't miss the opportunity to see this local talent's work. The entire place is wonderful for all ages. Sam Keenan

We visited in the middle of a summer week with 3 kids, ranging in age from 9 months to 7 years, and all of our kiddos had a blast! The facilities were clean, there was plenty of interactive fun for all 3 kiddos and we had a great time!

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!)
