Many exhibits and only $6. Would definitely go here again. My son is 5 and we spent about three hours there. Only drawback is parking.

We're so glad that you and your son had a good time at the Children's Museum of La Crosse. For future visits, we recommend parking in the Market Square ramp, on Jay Street, just a half block from the Museum. Like all of downtown La Crosse's parking ramps, it offers 3 hours of free parking, and only 75 cents per... More

My 2 year old loves playing here, especially the camping area, fire truck, dinosaurs, and grocery/convenience store. There was also a morning craft, followed by a song and snack. Our admission was free due to a reciprocal agreement with our local children's museum where we were members.

My three year old loved this Children's museum! It had a lot of fun things right up his ally- a fire truck, a crane truck and a water table. Besides the climbing wall, I'm not sure how much school aged children would enjoy, but overall we had fun and my son keeps asking to go back.

My daughter and grandchildren live in Oregon. They have been to many children's museums and they thought the museum in La Crosse was one of the best they had been to. We spent an hour and a half there and wished we could have stayed another two hours.

My 6 year old son loves this place. Stop once every year. Tiny Kwik Trip store is always a favorite. Only thing that sucks is you have to park on street and admission is $6 for all ages.

I took my 18 month old son here and he thought it was amazing. They have an area dedicated to kids under 4. They are all hands on and there is a lot to keep them busy. We spent two hours there and I am sure we could have stayed longer. It is easy on the wallet to. Decent price... More

If you had kids that are active, this is the place to go! It's worth the fee to enter. There are rotating displays that are all interactive. There are also crafts and often times special shows. Great for one kid or a large group. Staff is helpful, the museum is clean, check out their website to see special events.

We bought our grandson a museum membership but the daily entrance fee is worth every penny if you have to occupy young children. Plenty of hands on activities and displays for every interest from the climbing wall to the dinosaur maze, the firestation to the mini kwik trip and the shadow wall is always fun.

Great place to take kids and grand kids. Mine loved the climbing wall, Kwik Trip for kids, bank, toddler area, river exhibit with hands on water feature, and dinosaur maze. Three floors of activities and fun.

I am old enough, and I guess local enough, to have volunteered to help establish this museum in the community. I wasn't a parent then, and wondered how some of the exhibits could possibly hold kids' attention. Now that I have a 2 year old, I see the appeal through his eyes! Some of our favorite exhibits include the Dino... More
