“Daughter had a lot of fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

Took my 21 month old here. She enjoyed it and had fun. She was a little small for something's but it was still worth going. She loved the grocery store and Kohls play area. I think it's best for 2-6 year olds. It got busy on a Saturday morning. Would try to go on a school day if possible next time. I will try to take her back in a year and see how she likes it.

“One of the better places for kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

My young kids love this museum. We are able to spend a couple of hours there and keep interest with all ages. BB is not big enough to "kill" a day, but can help fill a couple of hours.

“Great for kids 10 and under.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is a great place to visit if you are from out of town with kids under 10. Although there much of this hands in activity center is the same as the last visit there was one large area that has changed significantly since 3 years ago. The new "50 states" exhibit is VERY well done. This is a great place to take the kids when at the lakeshore.
