Super cute -- ages up to 10 years old

We went during a Lady Bug special event and my little ones loved it. Wish we could have spent more time there. Not much for my oldest (14) but I think he had a nice time, too. Beautiful gardens

What a novel idea for the city of Sheboygan to put together for its community to enjoy. The various nooks where children can sit and read, or use their imaginations is wonderful. The fact that it is free is awesome! Went without children, but as a group of adults could see the wonders of this special garden!

Bookworm Gardens keeps growing and growing! This is a "must" for families with children visiting Sheboygan County. You can take a casual walk through to experience "The Three Little Pigs" adventure or walk in a house from Laura Ingalls Wilder. You can plan to attend a scheduled event --I volunteered to take part in reader's theater after hearing about it... More

I took my 2 exchange students there who are in high school. Even though they didn't know many of the books, they still enjoyed walking around, eating a picnic lunch, and seeing how creative everything was set up.

My granddaughter loves this place! Her favorite areas are the monster house area (currently closed for updates until Aug. 2015) and the "farm" area where the kids can take watering cans around to water the vegetables and the flowers. She also likes playing in the school bus that is located at the entryway. It is a great value for your... More

This is a great (and free) place to bring the kids. The gardens are fantastic and the tie in to books lets the kids relate to it. Lots of fun photo ops.

This museum is totally different from an other museum that I have visited before. The theme of this outdoor museum is based on characters from famous books. A stroll through the garden lasts between 30-40 minutes & features many sulptures from many well known books & movies. Located on the campus of University Wisconsin Sheboygan. There is something for everyone.... More
