Great fun place to take the kids. Lots of interaction with science and fun. Staff is excellent. Easy to spend one or several hours especially great for cold days.

I have visited wonderlab for years and each of my 8 grandchildren have enjoyed their unique experiences. I would recommend a membership as a rewarding and educational gift for any grandchild. Always a memorable experience and time of learning.

This is such a fun museum that is so well attended, it diminishes the experience a bit. Don't say away, though, just bring hearing protection!

As a visitor to Bloomington, it was great for a one day activity. Plan to be there for 2-4 hours max to see and do everything the museum has to offer. Geared towards the 10 and under crowd. Very innovative, and entertaining for the size...More

The price is high considering the limited things to do. Parents must pay full price to watch the kids play.

My 4-year-old loves coming here. He particularly likes the under-five area which is one of the better ones I've seen with lots of compelling activities for small children (including water table access) in a compact and well-organized space. One warning: The ceilings are high on...More

From my perspective most displays and activities are for children a few years older. Some may be suitable. Perhaps give Wonderlab a call.
