Grandma and grandpa came to visit and we wanted somewhere to go that wouldn't take all day but everybody would enjoy. We took our 16-year-old, 13-year-old and 10-year-old... read more

Ice cream galore!! Eat all the ice cream and drink all the tea you would like. Brought our 8 year old son and he loved being able to milk the mechanical cow. Make sure to book the lab experience ahead of time because during the school break they were all sold out. Very fun being able to make your own... More

My husband & two sons , ages 7 and 11, all love icrecream so this was the perfect stop on our weekend getaway. I recommend booking this ahead & selecting a lab reservation time. Great museum which you can walk around at your own pace. Just make sure you are at the lab at your selected time. In the lab... More

Grandma and grandpa came to visit and we wanted somewhere to go that wouldn't take all day but everybody would enjoy. We took our 16-year-old, 13-year-old and 10-year-old. Everybody had fun! Grandma enjoyed reading all the history about Turkey Hill, the kids skipped that part. Everybody had a blast making their own flavor ice cream. You end up with about... More

Kids were looking forward to making their own ice cream. But I think having an all you can taste ice cream bar was their favorite part! My wife and I enjoyed it too. A cool place to bring the kids for an afternoon.

My mother and I went here and had a great time. We were lucky enough to be able to get a walk up reservation for the taste lab which was def worth it. We had fun and got some great pics!

We arrived on a Friday afternoon, which avoided typical weekend/holiday crowds. I have two younger boys who had a ball playing video games, milking a virtual cow, riding in a static milk truck, playing in a ball pit and, of course, making their own flavor of ice cream! The staff was very cordial and has the whole thing down to... More

We went on Good Friday and the place was MOBBED. That being said, we had reserved our Lab time in advance and had 2 hours to play and taste before hand. If it were less crowded it would have been better, but we got to enjoy almost every activity and the kids had a blast. I would go here again,... More

I took my two kids here, ages 6 and 8, as a fun activity over Spring Break. I live in the Baltimore/Annapolis area and it is only ~an hour and a half away. My only disappointment is that first thing in the morning, I hopped online to get tickets to the tasting lab I had heard about. But it said... More

Truly a must we had a great time it's not a huge place but enough to keep 2 adults, 2 ten year olds and a 13 yr old busy for 3 hrs. All the tasting you want and many hands on exhibits. You can even make your own commercial and view it online......believe me it was worth it....

Hubby and I went here on a Sunday because he loves Ice Cream. Great because it's not just for kids. Make sure you call ahead and book your appointment for the testing taste lab as it fills up very quickly. We got to make our own ice cream flavour and leave with a pint of it. You also get to...
