We went to this museum a year ago with our grandchildren and again yesterday. I was very disappointed, the dispalays have not been updated and did not appear to have been cleaned during that time. Some displays were not working at all. The train was not running a year ago and it was completely missing (supposedly for repairs) yesterday. We... More

You have to allocate at least an hour to stay in the museum. Arts and crafts, scientific facts, games, music, all jam packed in a two-storey house. Place is a bit tight for heavy crowd but sure a loads of fun and learning experience for children ages 10 and below. Entrance fee.

It advertises that it is for children. However, it really is only for pre-preschoolers. Our children were 7 & 8 and made the best of it but were not stimulated. The carousel was pretty cheesy & the locomotive was not running.

This was a decent place to take the kids. My little one loved the painting!. I would advise not taking a train ride if you have a little one under 5. It is really rough and loud.

At least half of the exhibits are broken or not fully functional. Many looked like they were junior high student projects, and there is erroneous information in a few. Many items are quite dirty. Admission should be reduced in the winter since none of the outdoor activities are operational. In addition, there were discount coupons for admission in the museum,... More

We took our 2 year old granddaughter to the museum. It was fantastic! Hands on and very creative. She did not want to leave. Kids under 7 will love it

We decided to do something different while in Fargo. (Always the same old routine) This place was probably amazing in it's hay-day. It has all you could ask for in a kid's facility! Hands on interactive exhibits! Except...... most everything was broken in one way or another. Don't get me wrong, the kids still had a good time. This is... More

I have been here a lot over the last five years and it has not changed. Not once. It is still a cold, run down old house. There are many attractions but very few are actually operational. Majority of the "exhibits" have pieces missing or are flat out broken. There is a cow that is supposed to teach the kids... More
