“Great Place for Kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

We visit here with the grandchildren. It is a hands-on museum, and has exhibits available for all ages. During the school year, they have a time when you can take children ages 2 and under to explore the museum. They shut off the lower level, and the little ones have free range of the upper level. They have a theme for each session, like sound, art, music, etc. so the children get to explore different things. During the summer they have summer camps in which children can learn and explore different ideas. My grandson enjoyed the art camp last summer. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

“A Hidden Gem in NEPA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

This is a great museum for young children. One you would never expect to find in a small town in NEPA. Our grandson loves the place and can't wait for his next visit. Highly recommended.

“Great place for children!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

A lot of museums are "Hands-off", but not this one. The kids can touch just about everything, from dressing up in period costumes or sitting in a one room schoolhouse, walking through the coal mine, or the Egyptian Display. They can learn about history of the area, or just play with the pneumatic actuators to move a ball around. Learning is not boring at this museum. Both of my kids played with the Amadinda, making music for almost an hour alone. You will quickly wonder where 3-4 hours went, and your kids weren't asking you for anything!

“Boring”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

Whoever writes all of the excellent reviews obviously works for this establishment. The first big room is basically the same toys you would see at any average daycare, with the added flair of a few synthetic trees and stuffed wildlife. The "science" half of the building is not even close to being interesting for any child. I don't know many toddlers who want to learn about diabetes and the history of immigration and the coal industry. Bottom line is if you have to try to persuade your kids to have fun and be interested, then the place isn't very fun and interesting. Many of the exhibits are based around "dress up" or crafts, so unless your kids plan on sitting in one spot for 15+minutes and repeating this procedure..they will be bored out of their mind. So we basically drove 40+ miles to play with a Train table....yay:)

“Super nice for children 10 or under”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

I took my 9, soon to be 10, son and his friend to the Children's Museum. Although I was concerned that the children were too old for this museum, they had a lot of fund and learned a bit from their visit. We spend there an hour and a half but the kids could easily play for up to 3 hours. Great educational environment.
