This is an amazing children’s museum and well worth the trip. Many themed rooms (eg the fishery, farm, shire) where kids can play learn and explore. Perfect for kids 2-7, might be a little less fun either older or younger.

Unique in every way, the art work and wood craft can only be found at Kidcity. Not modern but good attention to detail and child safety. The medieval village is always a hit, but my favorite is the lake house. The kids will be entertained...More

This place is awesome for young children. My kids, ages 3 and 5, loved it. There are some truly creative and innovative people who put this museum together. We stayed for about 2.5 hours but my kids would have happily stayed longer if I let...More

Got a season pass for the family as a gift. Only went a handful of times because not much changes. Great place but would like to see new things added each month. Not asking a lot... Just something.
