Really enjoyed taking the grands here. There is a lot to see and do. Lots of hands on stuff and fun ways of learning. My grandson really enjoyed the balls rolling in different patterns and climbing on the netting and tube that span the floors.

We recently took our grandchildren, aged 4 1/2 and 2 1/3 to see this museum. We could have stayed much longer, as there was so much to do! But we can save the other floors, chutes and ladders for another visit! Both enjoyed the farm experience, especially harvesting the "corn" and then putting the ears back on the stalks! Milking...

This is a remarkable building. It has 4 stories of thugs to do and learn. We visited with grandchildren, ages 4 to 10. They all loved it. There were not only stairs and an elevator connecting the floors there were tunnels and a climbing "ladder", There was a zip line, painting on a glass wall, ant farms, insects, a class... More

It was such a great experience. I loved the mixture of local history and basic exhibits. My kids loved the different exhibits but the Motion one was their favorite. They loved playing with the golf balls. They also loved that my wife and I could do everything with them, including climbing around the tubes. They also do not charge for... More

This museum was built for children of all ages. Read the history of the building on their website, it's so neat! The light up staircase is so fun and the rooms are so creative! Hours and hours of hands-on exploring. Worth the price!

great hands on learning and play for the younger set. A real gem in the downtown area. Always a good place to go, and their special programs are usually a jewel

Amazement Square lives up to its name; it's truly amazing! I took some children I was nannying for there, and they had the best time! You can spend several hours moving from floor to floor, learning both science and history in a hands-on way! You can dress up, put on a puppet show, or paint all over glass walls! You... More
