It has three stories of fun things to do. Water and dinosaurs in the basement. A cool firetruck and tubes and scarves on the ground floor and activities for smaller kids on the 1st floor. Also a make believe Kwik Trip inside and a news stand. Just cool stuff all around!

The LaCrosse Children's Museum is such an asset to our city. There is an admission charge but for anyone who lives here I would definitely recommend looking into the annual membership. For a relatively small fee, you can support the museum AND obtain free admission for one child and up to six additional friends. The museum provides hours of fun... More

We took our 3 & 5 Year old grandchildren here on their 1st train trip to La Crosse. The train didn't leave until 7pm so we were looking for something to keep them busy for the day and this was the place!! We got here at noon and didn't leave until 4:30. With 3 floors it kept us "busy" the... More

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.
