“the kids loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Great place for the kids..tons of stuff for them to do for about 2 to 3 hours. Stinks that adults have to pay $5 admission, but we made sure we got in the giant bubble and had lots of fun blowing bubbles for the kids outside. Our kids spent as much time in the backyard as they did in the house itself. All around good time, very friendly staff. Would return.

“Enjoyable for small children”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013 via mobile

This children's museum is set in a historic house. The rooms are small but chocked full of things to do. There is role play, experiments, art, etc. This is a small museum but enjoyable. There is a small gift shop with educational items. There appears to be the ability to have birthday parties there as well. A hour or two here is just right for a child,

“Fun for the kiddos”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

This is a small play museum located in a two story Gettysburg home. The parking is scarce but there is a public lot on the street behind the museum. Unfortunately, adults have to pay admission but they do offer discounts for groups. if you are not a part of a group, you may want to check that no groups are scheduled before you plan your trip because it is a rather small space. With those cautions, my kiddos do like visiting this place and always seem to have fun. Another tip...be sure to paint first thing so your creations have time to dry!

“Messy Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

My 5 year old grandson was enthralled with being inside a bubble. He loved the water experiments - Lots of things one can't do at home. Wonderful crafts area and he brought home some great art creations. Lovely owners who really like kids. Even the store showed lots of thought - a great place to buy children's gifts
