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.

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

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!

There are activities for kids of all ages, the staff goes above and beyond with programming that appeals to parents and kids alike. We look forward to the old and the new exhibits and have really enjoyed the... More

We have been to the Children's Museum in La Crosse many times and love it! The climbing wall is always a favorite and the staff are so positive and encouraging to the kiddos climbing. Oh and adults can climb to so watch out for the pressure from your kiddos! What's most fun for us is when we bring friends/family with... More

As a family, we've been to a fair amount of children's museum, small to large. Iowa City, St. Paul, Eau Claire, Madison, Green Bay, Duluth... to name some. The first time we ever went to the La Crosse children's museum, about 8 years ago or so, it was fun. Every time after that, we left thinking that they need to... More

We don't often hear that visitors, especially 4 year olds, are bored here. We are sorry to hear that your recent visit to the Children's Museum was not what you expected. Your message indicates that you were here on Feb. 28, which was our 16th birthday celebration. We had many special activities going on throughout the day, which generated lots... More
