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!

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
