We came from the twin cities area, and have visited the children's Museum in St. Paul many times. We've visited many other children's museums when visiting family and friends, and I would rate this above many we have visited in cities larger than LaCrosse. My expectations were probably low, but I was very impressed with their exhibits! Favorite of my... More

The Children's Museum seems to be well-kept and reasonably priced. It's not huge and some of the attractions within the museum have limited open hours. The child I was with enjoyed her time, but it didn't take long to travel through the museum exhibits.

My young sons love it here. We just purchased a membership. They never get bored and are always excited to go. They even have programs throughout the week that are included with your admission/membership.

We love the Children's Museum! We frequently visit the museum with our 3 year old (and 3 month old). There are unlocked cubbies to keep your coats. They have 3 levels of fun. The bottom level has a great water (River) system that my son loves to play in. There is also a dinosaur maze, rock climbing wall (he's never... More

We love to see families become regular guests--we're so glad you and your kids are enjoying the Children's Museum of La Crosse.

We are a non-profit organization and earn most of our operating income (for wages, utilities, insurance, exhibits, maintenance and all... More

I was very pleased with the museum and might have enjoyed it almost as much as my girlfriends niece lol. Lots to do and see here plus it can be educational.

A great time for kids and adults! This was a wonderful museum to visit. It is quite large for the size of the city. Many interactive displays and three floors of activities make this a great choice. We had a fun afternoon of exploring this great children's museum!

I remember going here as a kid. We always had so much fun. There are many different activities for kids of all ages. When I started babysitting I took those children here too! There is everything from a rock wall to a miniature super market. Some fun for adults too!!

This is such a wonderful place to take children of all ages. So much to do to keep them occupied. Great place on a cold day when they have cabin fever!

We have been visiting the museum for 5 years (my son is 6) and I can't say enough great things about it. There are activities for kids of all ages, the staff goes above and beyond with programming that appeals to parents and kids alike.
