“Outdoor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

The sculptures outside were the best part of the visit. They were in the front and the rear of the museum displayed very well

“Now the Riverfront Museum”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

Lakeview Museum was the best at it's former location on Lake Ave. Small building but had awesome exhibits and new exhibits rotated every couple of months. It's no longer there and has moved to the Riverfront where it's disappointing now. Very large building and less things to look at. Parking is not free anymore like it was at it's former location! Poor attendance records show loss of interest. Once you've seen it you won't go back. Museum should not have been moved, it was doing well attendance wise where it was. Always free parking made it great!

It's been years since I've been there, but the kids & I enjoyed it. They had a lot of cool, interactive displays.

My grandkids love to go here. They enjoy the children's section of the museum and the gift store. My grandchildren also took art lesson at this building. Very happy with the classes.
