Kids enjoyed it but I was not impressed at all. We went in the summer and the air condition was not on or working very hot and miserable. I left in less than an hour because I felt like I was suffocating. It was not my 1st trip but will be my last. I gave them a second chance and... More

I am a local, at age 70plus, and I have 8 grandchildren..ages 17-8 and all of them have been here..many times..and had birthday parties. This is a place of great memories for them and should be a place of fun and memories for many children. As a retired educator it is an asset to Fayetteville!!

This is a great option for your under five year old crowd. The Museum is VERY low tech however a big HIT with the little crowd. The older crowd will be bored but remind yourself that you are there for them and they are having a blast and best of all they are using their imagination. This good for maybe... More

A great place for kids to unwind and be creative. Our girls especially enjoyed the "dressup" corner. It was really fun watching them enjoy all the fascinating exhibits

We've been in other museum's with this theme, although most don't call themselves museums, and find this to be the best we've visited. It is designed as a town for children -- they can grocery shop, fight fires, join the Army, work in a hospital, etc. Displays are clean and in working order and children may self select where they...

Wasn't overly large but my kids really enjoyed it. It's nice and open to let them explore and touch everything. The lower level was fairly clean and updated but the train section and the upper levels of the building were either under construction or just junky. Don't get me wrong the train exhibit upstairs was GREAT, my son especially LOVED... More

I took my 5 year old son here the other day. He had a blast saying that the fire pole was his favorite thing there. There are lots of good displays there. They have many different occupation set ups there which is cool for the kids to learn more about different jobs. I'm from out of town and they had... More

If you are used to big children's museums like the Marble's in Raleigh, you must manage your expectations. Fayetteville is not Raleigh and Fascinate-U is not Marbles. I took my toddler to Fascinate-U on a weekday in the afternoon. She could participate in all the exhibits, but most are designed for slightly older and larger kids. I would say the... More

We visited Fascinate-U children's museum today and were none too pleased. This place is old, run down and dirty. No one is keeping things up. Everything was misplaced, there were things scattered everywhere and half of the things didn't even work. It is small and unorganized. We were very disappointed in the lack of security and saw people just walking... More

Fascinate U Children's Museum is your average small city /big town kid's museum. They had a good variety of topics but some of the materials needed updating/repair. If you are looking for something to do at a reasonable cost without having to go too far this could be it. If you are able to drive a little ways bypass and... More
