“Fun for all ages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

We took our grandchildren here while being in the area for a conference. Our grandchildren 5 and 12 both had a great time. They are so far apart in age it is hard to find things for both to do. This has wonderful different sections of lots of hands on things to do. A piano on the floor, a life size operation game, guitars, colors that move to your body on a screen to baby dolls to doctor. My husband and fun even had fun!

My kids beg me to bring them here. I live in Pekin and we go into Bloomington area solely for this. Three floors of fun learning!! All hands on and has the coolest web two stories high for kids to climb. For kids of all ages to about 10-12. Small vending area with milk juice cookies crackers etc. Many places within walking to eat. Free parking

“This place has great educational play for children”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

Spent a few hours in the museum today and my kids learned alot. It was very entertaining and educational. There is three floors of displays, activities and crafts for the kids. We had the most fun on the middle floor with farming and tractors. Make sure you allow enough time for the multi level climbing area, it was a blast for the kids. The only draw back was the amount of people visiting today it was over crowded, I will only come back during the week. The value for the money was good also, two and over is $6per person.

“A nice place top take the kids.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

We've taken our daughter here many times over the past 1 or so. She's 2.5 and loves it. She'll likely like it more as she gets just a bit older. It is well maintained and clean. Nice to have a place like this in Bloomington.

“4 year old loved it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

I took my 4 yo son. He loved the ball machine and the farming area. You put balls or cloths into tubes and the airflow pushes them to other areas and shoots them out. They have an eating area with tables so you can bring a lunch or snacks. Nice set up. Great deal do $6.
