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.

Our 6 year old daughter enjoyed the museum and alphabet garden, so it was worth the time and money to visit this museum. I'd say this place is meant for kids under 5, so my daughter might have been a bit too old for it. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is that I was expecting there to... More

We had a terrible experience. An older lady who worked there was extremely rude to my young daughter. She treated my daughter as if she did something terribly wrong barely 5 min into our visit there. My child was picking some plastic fruits from the wall trees. This woman told her not to mess around because she is not going... More

Just went here with my son who happens to be autistic. It is wonderful. There is so much to do and so many little places to escape to. They have a train table which can be a life saver in our world. My son also rode their train. Just an awesome couple hours.

First of all, let me say the kids had a good time, but really there isn't much here. A little run down and disappointed in the Pippy Longstocking playhouse. My girls were excited to see it and even they commented on how underwhelming it was. This attraction was about the best Fargo had for kids and it wasn't terribly expensive.... More
