With two toddlers in tow, we navigated the well planned KCM. Fun for adults and kids alike. Dewey would be so pleased to see the educational opportunities for curious kids to touch, role play, create, and revel in the environment. These toddlers' favs were the grocery shop (cute kid-sized carts) the baby hospital nursery (x-rays and diapers were a hit),... More

My niece LOVES this place! So many interactive things to do. Kids can use their imagination by climbing on a "ship" or "bus" or play "store" where they can interact with other kids. Water features are a natural attraction for kids. But they aren't just playing; they can learn things or participate in doing art projects. Hours of fun and... More

Neat place with neat ideas. Kids really enjoyed it. Only problem is that it gets very busy. Crowds can be an issue.

Best for children 2 to 6 years old. There is always something new to discover at Kohls. Lots of life's lessons in every day living, the arts, and commerce, as well as buttons to push and dials to turn. Things are sometimes in need or repair but with hundreds of little ones using them non stop it is no wonder.... More

Kids always have fun here while also learn a few things at the same time. It has very nice atmosphere and the outdoor experiences are very nice as well,

My Mom used to volunteer as a greeter at this wonderful children's museum. After 30 years of teaching 2nd grade, she loved being there talking to children and parents, and they loved her being there too. There is so much for kids to do - from numerous normal exhibits to a multitude of special programs, and kids are made to... More

We visited this unique museum with our grandson. This is a really a fun and educational place for young children. There are several exhibits from daily life where children can participate and feel. The notable ones are: grocery shopping , car wash, music lessons, house maintenance, water power etc. Young children can spend hours without getting bored. There is a... More

My son who is 6 just loves this place. He's loved it since he was a year old. There's lots of fun stuff to do. You could easily spend 4 hours there. The Cosi cafe is a great place to relax and have lunch although I wish they had a better staff.
