great for small children

My 3 & 4 year old grandchildren loved it. There are several play areas with items for different interests. In the summer there is also an outdoor area.

I have a godson who really enjoys his visits to the museum which offers a variety of interactive exhibits and educational displays. Lots of free parking and the staff is excellent. Weekly programs are taught and he loves them

We are regular visitors to the one in naperville Illinois and have taken the kids to the one in Appleton. The Fond du Lac museum is on the right path, just needs to step up their game.

We have enjoyed this museum for years both in their original location and their new larger location. Lots of fun things for the kiddos to do and lots of bright colors and hands on imagination stuff to keep their senses churning. My son was last there at age 6… I did feel that last time that we had somewhat outgrown... More

our grandkids love going there, but there always seems to be something broken. The moved to a bigger building - I liked the old one better. Kids can go outside here. I guess kids have fun and grandparents are just there to watch and do a few things.

Paying $6 for a one year old who cannot do much here was not worth it. Its only free for under one, I think this should be under two. Make sure you know there is a membership as the girls at the front desk do not tell you and were not friendly. Yes it is posted, but lets face it... More

We took our 2.5 year old son here last weekend in an effort to beat cabin fever! Price is $6 per person. There was a toddler area with a smaller slide for little ones. There is also supposed to be a train set to play with - the table was there but there were no trains for the little guy... More

Touted as an interactive museum, there was actually very little to do. I visited with two grand nieces, age three, and they both seemed bored. One nice feature of the museum was they were able to get a "passport" and have it stamped at each of the countries attractions we were visiting. Most of the machines were not operable and... More

You will be amazed all the play stations your child will encounter. They start with the World map and pick up your passport to travel different destinations. Wonderful staff, prices affordable for family plans. Convenient location and then you can stop at our lovely Lakeside Park.

My daughter(2.5) LOVED the pizza parlor and my older nephews were happily entertained for a long time by a wall mounted, customizable "marble" type maze. Overall, I would say its geared toward quite young children and im pleased to say I just heard they added a nursing area within the museum!
