Eddie is the 3 story boy that the kids can play in and learn about the body internal organs. There are arts and crafts and a real fire engine to play on. There is a play farm and store and restaurant for the kids to enjoy. My only negative is there is no place for families on a limited budget... More

We took our 10 year old great niece to Edventure, hoping for a fun experience during her visit with us. According to their website, this place is for kids up to 12, but I didn't see a single exhibit that would appeal to a child over 6. On top of it all, I would estimate that 70% of the hands-on...

My family drove down to Columbia for a day trip just to get away. We had plans to do other things but rain started and we looked up other things to do with our two boys. We found Edventure and it looked like fun so we tried it. Our 2 yr old so much fun with all the activities there... More

This was my first time back to Edventure in about 5 years do to the age of our children. We went on a rainy Saturday so the place was pretty full. The admission price of $11.50 would have been a deterrent from taking the whole family of 5 but I only had two kids with me and I got in... More

My family, including our 4 year old has visited several times. It was a lot of fun watching her experience each zone on her own. We had a blast. Her favorite has to be the grocery store and farm. Although the construction and craft areas are a close second. For parents, if you need a break the craft room or... More

My children just love Edventure. There are activities for all levels of children and plenty of things to do. The only downfall is the admission that is charged for parents and kids. Unlike the zoo where there are enjoyment for the adults, this is pretty much just a place for children.

We stopped in to break up a long drive and I was glad we did. We showed up 2 hours before close on Sunday. It wasn't too busy, thankfully. Originally I was surprised that I had to pay full price for my 14 month old, but once we got into some of the exhibits I realized that there was so... More

The Edventure Chidren's museum was a fun place to spend an afternoon. It was very clean, and easy to navigate. The employees were friendly. However, I thought it was a little ridiculous that my 19 month old had to pay full price admission. My son (4 1/2) had a lot of fun though. There is lots to do for any... More

My 11 year old had a great time there. Ed is humongous and easy to navigate. We left for lunch and then came back to have some more fun.

Wow!!! So many happy and excited children. A busy morning with so much to see and do. Ages 3 to 14 had a wonderful, playful, and learning experience. The butterfly exhibit was a huge hit for everyone. The dinosaurs were fun and interesting. The hands on engineering and crafts room had everyone trying to make a better parachute than the... More
