In Bloomington, this is a go-to place for young children (and even adults, too)! So many cool activities. My kids have outgrown it, but I'd recommend it to any families with young children. I found the price to be high, but it's worth it.

This has been a favorite attraction of ours for a few years. Even though the group of kids we took this time are at the age (9-12 years) where they are on the cusp of outgrowing the attraction, they still had a great time exploring all the exhibits and participating in the build your own marble race track. They all... More

Bloomington is a small college town with a population of maybe 65,000, if you don't include the Students. That being said, Wonder Lab is a Children's Science Museum that rivals many in much larger cities. The activities are fun and engaging for all ages. There is any area reserved for smaller children, and the focus of the entire place is... More

The Wonderlab is a huge asset to Bloomington's families. The exhibits and permanent displays are great for everyone age 1 and up. We were members for a year, but have decided not to renew this year because on our last FIVE visits, my son got sick with a cold. :( I hope that this is just because of the volume... More

Took our twin 2 year old boys and was two hours well spent. Water area kept them occupied and stimulated, and the parachute activity was entertaining.

We visited WonderLab for the first time today on a one-day trip to Bloomington. My children, ages 5 and 10, had a blast. I liked that there were things for both of my children to enjoy.
