I've been living in Fayetteville for 15 years and never been to Fascinate U, but last year I took my grand daughter there. I believe I was more "Fascinated" than she was. I loved all the miniature things they had there for the kids. Being there took me back to my childhood days and, my grand daughter just loved it.... More

I have been forced to go here for more than one birthday party, otherwise, I would never let my kids go here. All of the "toys" are outdated. Everything seems dirty and old. I have been to this museum over the course of about five years and absolutely nothing has changed. It's hard to believe that it's still open.

This is my go-to place when I'm babysitting children ages 10 and under. It's extremely fun for the kids, because they get to pay dress up and grocery store/mailman/cop/etc., but it does charge for entry. I don't know why they don't update some of the toys, because I remember these toys when I was playing here 10+ years ago! This... More

This is a child's interactive site that will keep both child and adult on the move. My nephew asked for a repeat visit.

My daughter has lots of fun here, but why do I have to pay to get in? The dress up stage is nice, with lots of different things to try on, the news broadcast is really cool and the grocery store is a lot of fun. Like most things in Fayetteville there are things that need to be fixed/replaced. Overall... More

This is a fun little children's museum hidden downtown. It is great for younger aged children, 10 and under. They also have other opportunities for children to be involved in extra-curricular activities, such as weekly art classes. The staff is friendly and helpful!

Took my 3 year old granddaughter here on a recent trip to Fayetteville and she had a ball!!! The museum is a little dated and some of the electronic activities needed to be fixed, but she barely noticed as there were more than enough other attractions to keep her busy and happy. Have taken her to the children's touch-me museum... More

Fascinate museum is 180 degrees different than most museums. The norm is to look but do NOT touch. This museum not only allows visitors to pick up and play with its equipment, but encourages it. Practically nothing is breakable so parents can sit back and enjoy their children's creativity. Each room and section of the museum is different and inviting.... More

I have been here twice and thought I would provide a short review. The layout of the museum is well thought out but the size is terribly small. The "exhibits" are also cute and well thought out but all of them are incredibly old and worn down with well over 50% of all mechanical props being broken in some capacity.... More
