Learning Place For Young Children

Took grandchildren, ages 7 and 6, to museum. They liked the hands on displays once they knew what the displays were attempting to show. Younger children seem to have more fun... read more

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

Attraction was a little dated. No Wow factor. The train was not working. 3 year old was bored and when it started to rain we were easily ready to leave.

Came time to making an art project. Party assistant put out materials and sat in a chair. After this, she wiped... More

Took grandchildren, ages 7 and 6, to museum. They liked the hands on displays once they knew what the displays were attempting to show. Younger children seem to have more fun just playing with everything. Took train ride on the grounds. For kids to get the most out of this location, adults need to partake in explaining some of the...
