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!

Kids love the different areas to explore. Each time we go I see signs of what is to come or being expanded upon.

The building is brighter and cleaner than the old museum. The additional floor space makes it much easier to navigate. Unfortunately, many of the same attractions were just transported to the new location. Disappointing were the Montreal radio station which still doesn't work and the station where you should be able to shoot golf balls through a maze of tubes.... More

The Fond du Lac Children's Museum was a good stop on a rainy afternoon. I liked the open layout, which permits parents to rest in a central location and watch their children as they explore freely. My preschooler had a blast and could have played all day. Her favorite exhibits were the pizzeria and the shadow gallery. But my older... More

While space is limited the plans to update and expand will be welcome to Fond Du Lac. I feel it is a bit pricey for a smaller town and an expensive place to take your child to play for it's limited offerings.

The wife wanted to take the grandkids there to entertain them one afternoon, basically to quiet things down for awhile. I must admit it kept us all entertained for quite awhile. The kids loved it and didn't want to leave. The great news is that they are relocating to a much larger location, where the old Pic n Save on... More

My 15 month old daughter and I visited the museum with a friend and her two children (ages 3 and 5). All of the kids had a really good time! There is a designated area for infants/toddlers with a gate. All the toys in this area are soft and there's even a slide for the little ones! The museum also... More
