We took my two year old grandson here on a rainy Saturday. The museum is small and yes it could use some updating but my grandson couldn't have cared less. He went from room to room, activity to activity and was entertained for an hour, ( his attention span, not the lack of things to do). Remember, this place is... More

We've been here three times over a two year period and every time my kids drag their heels and do not want to leave. With 3 kids, 1, 3, and 6 years old it is very helpful to have an extra adult with me... Which usually means extra fun for grandma! We go during the week when it is less... More

The staff were so very nice and helpful. There are a lot of things to do, but boy is this place small. It is not handicap accessible with having to go up steps to get in (entrance with the least has 2-3 steps, but not the main entrance) and a huge flight of stairs to go upstairs for construction and...

We visited Explore and More with our two year old granddaughter and she had lots of fun. Yes, the facility could use a little updating but the activities more than made up for that. I didn't think the pricing was terribly excessive and the adult fee was well worth the time we had and the smiles we shared. There are... More

Fantastic place for a 2-year-old to have fun while on vacation! Each room has its own theme ... age appropriate activities for pre-schoolers.

We were in town for the weekend with our two year old son and it was raining so we needed an indoor activity. We heard about this children's place and thought we would check it out. Price is a bit much in my opinion but there is so much to do. They have a craft room and you can take... More

This museum was just alright. It is definitely on the smaller side, in an old home. Our boys were just turning 6 when we went and they were running out of interest within about an hour. Maybe it is more for younger children or would hold the interest of kids that are a little less high energy ; )

My daughter (2) had fun but this place could use a lot of updating. The stuff here was clearly from the 90s and some of it wasn't in good condition. We found this place from trip advisor and everyone raved. We were on vacation and thought this would be a fun thing for our little one to get her hands... More

Gettysburg is undoubtedly an adult oriented town, but this place is just for the kiddos! It was very nice and Andrea was a wonderful host. The location was very historic and my daughter wanted to go back when we returned to Abingdon!

My kids love this place!! It is very creative and well thought out, and the activities are so interesting! The kids loved standing in a bubble, and making arts and crafts upstairs! It is very reasonably priced and well worth the time! Also very close to home for us!
