“History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2012

It's a great place for adult or child. They have a children's museum in the main one so they can try on, touch and use the objects. For the adults, they have a great collection of historical artifacts, plus, if you need a small meeting area, they offer a luncheon and it's good, too. Nice gift shop, too. Easy to get to.

“Wish they were open more during the holidays.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2011

The La Belle exhibit is wonderful and I wish I could have shown my partner, but once again, the museum was closed the entire time we were there.

“wow...you won't believe this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2009

One of our favorite play areas is the Bay City Children's Museum! Although Bay City is a relatively small town, this museum is big on entertainment! Taking you back to an era past, the kids have a great time playing in an old time barber shop, grocery store, sheriff's jailhouse, post office and many, many more play areas. There are costumes to dress up in and a stage and auditorium to perform in! My grandchildren and I spend hours playing...allowing their imaginations to soar without the need of electronic games! It is perfect for a rainy day afternoon...but don't wait for rain to enjoy this special place. You will be amazed to find such a great children's museum in a rural area. We love the Houston museums, as well; but in Bay City you won't have to fight the crowds or the traffic!

Don't miss this treasure if you are visiting our area...you will enjoy it as much as your children!
