Our 5 granddaughters, ages 1-10, had a great time. Well worth the admission fee on a cold November day.

Our daughter was 7 at the time of this trip. She still enjoys the museum. We have been taking her for several years. Great place for kids 8 and younger.

Sad!!! Pieces are missing big time compared to previous visit. Huge train table only 5 pieces of train. Can keep going on but we might have made our last visit 😔. Staff was definitely not friendly just doing a job holding down a chair.

This place is amazing for the little one's to learn and play freely. There is so much to do in this two story building "that does have an elevator". A perfect setting for a 4 Year old's birthday party. Well Done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I took the Grandkids by chance to Discovery Depot and we all had a ball. To my surprise, every area both indoors and outdoors kept their interest. I even had a good time as well. I would highly recommend an afternoon of learning and fun with any child at the Discovery Depot!

Took grandkids on Amtrak from Ottumwa to Galesburg and back. The layover in Galesburg was about 3 hrs while waiting for the westbound train so we went to the museum. It's not so much a museum as it is an interactive educational play area. The kids loved it so much they didn't want to leave. There are several interactive play areas. They can play fireman, ambulance operator, letter carrier, pizza shop operator, veterinarian, banker and others. There are science experiments and so much to occupy the kids.

We found this great place on our last day visiting friends in Galesburg. We had so much fun with our granddaughters ages 6 and 4. We made pizza, played checkout at the grocery store, took a ride in the ambulance, and made phone calls on a phone attached to the wall-haha! We were there for about 2 hours, could have stayed longer but they were closing. Great place!
