Lots to do for younger kids.

My granddaughter really enjoyed the museum. At five years old, there was lots for her to do. We really enjoyed the science demonstration and going up and down the musical stairs.

My 3 year old had a blast here! I think her favorite parts, were all the buildings you could pretend in - a house, a hospital with nursery, bank, auto shop, grocery store complete with carts to shop and checkers to scan the groceries, grilling area, and pizza making station. It was fun watching all these little people getting to... More

Our kids had a great time at the museum. We spent close to 3 hours and could have spent more. My kids are 3 years apart and both found plenty of activities they liked. My only complaint is that there are activities inside the museum you had to pay extra for (train, carousel, glitter tattoos). The whole reason my kids... More

There are many activities for Kids, the space is a little bit cramped. Parking is free, and the location is convenient for downtown. the price is reasonable.

We stayed a lot longer than we thought we would due to all the wonderful exhibits. It's the perfect place to take kids while on the road.

Our kiddos LOVED this place. We have a children's museum at home, but we stayed here for several hours. Favorites were the princess-led shows and sing-alongs, the creative art area and the balls. Definitely a place to let the kids run free, though it was more fun to play right along with them. There's a cafe upstairs and a nice... More

My daughter loves this place. They have a ton of stuff to do for kids and we went during Halloween and they had a fun little kids haunted house thing set up. Lots of kids running around but well worth the visit.

Our kids had a good time (3 & 5), but I expected it to be a little more substantial/science centerish. Its basically just like a big play ground, not educational at all but the kids did seem to enjoy it. They have an art area where kids can paint, numerous play areas, and a ball room which was probably their... More

I have two boys, 7 and 5, they loved the museum!! There is so much to do! We got there just 15 minutes after they opened and it was very busy! There is so much for the kids to do, you could easily spend a whole day there. The one downside is you also have to pay the same price... More

This place has something for every age! Our daughter is 2 and she loved the main level of the museum. Specifically, they have a replica Hy-Vee grocery store that she absolutely loved. They also have a 2 story play house and she could've spent hours putting the baby dolls to sleep in the upstairs bedroom. They also had a replica... More
