Great museum for little ones. I took my almost 1 year old here, while she was a little too young for it there were still many activities to enjoy. I'd say about 2-6 year olds would like it best, but some activities for older ones, like the rock climbing wall.

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

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!!
