I'm glad my daughter and I spent the day here - we were travelling from Australia and while my husband was on a musical tour, my 6 year old and I spent the day. Some of the exhibitions need an upgrade, but that's only from an adults point of view. The food area was not good, but then I'm from... More

Lots of things to do for children. Adults enjoy it too. There was nothing to eat inside maybe because it was Sunday and restaurant was not open. So I recommend that you eat before getting there. You need around 2 hours to go through the attractions.

This is an excellent place for kids 2-9. Lots for them to do, lots for them to learn. From grocery shopping to playing dentist to climbing and flying an airplane (or pretending anyway). I love the water play. We had my sons 2nd birthday here and everyone had a great time. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Great for younger kids and there are a lot of things to explore. Lots of things for them to interact with and see like the tunnel with feathers to see where they fly. Very educational, but plan to spend at least 3 hours to get the chance for them to experience everything that this museum has to offer.

We took kids ages 2 to 10 here. All of them had a great time. They had a lot of neat hands on exhibits for kids-a grocery store, fed ex airplane, etc. Don't forget your swim suit because they have a fun splash area that my kids loved.

Bring your walking shoes, swimsuit, and sunscreen. This museum offers indoor and outdoor fun for preschool and elementary-aged children. My boys enjoyed playing dress-up at various learning stations. They pretended to be dentists, pilots, firefighters, and policeman. They climbed a tower and flew an airplane. We also liked fishing in the MS River exhibit. When we finished touring the museum,...

I have been going here since I was a little girl. GREAT place to have fun. But know I take my kids here to play and not much has changed on the inside. Love the cops area and fishing area. It only takes about 2-3 hours to play through everything. So for the price and the time spent know being... More

If you are traveling with children this is a good attraction to visit but it is a little over priced. It only takes about 2 hours to see everything they offer and that is taking your time doing all of it. I did not like that they charged extra to play outside considering the price to get in. Overall the... More

Went about 1 hour before closing and the kids didn't want to leave. Seemed to be more engaging for the younger kids 3-10, but our 11 year old also had a good time. We visited without knowing anything about it other than the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. I would rank it better than Indianapolis Children's Museum and reminded us... More
