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...

My kids have been going here since they were too little to remember and they still ask for it (ages 7 and 10.) We were two hours late to meet Grandma and Grandpa because I couldn't get them to stop painting, playing "Queen Bee," milking the cow, then going back upstairs and doing it again. We live in Minneapolis and... More

There are two main attractions at Yunker Farm: a miniature locomotive with cars for children and adults and a small carousel with horses. The museum building is small and not too interesting for children older than five or six. All four of our grandchildren enjoyed the short train ride and carousel when they were younger.

Used to take my children to Yunker Farm for years; it was a lot of fun for them with interesting little animal and science displays plus a small train that circles around the place.
