When our kids were younger, they LOVED Family Museum. I stopped in there this week to meet with director on business. I can't believe how many new things they've added. It's an incredible place for kids to learn and explore. The Quad Cities is fortunate to have it!

We have a family membership for the grandchildren and go at least twice a month. They are 3 years old, 5 years, and 6 years. The space has activities for all ages, however, most are geared to younger than 5 years old. The Think Shop is fun for older children but there are only 9 work areas so it gets... More

Took my three children (10,2,1) and my 8 year old nephew and everyone had a good time! My 10 year old was ready to go after 2 hours but I think he was hesitant to enjoy due to his age The other three kids would have stayed all day had I let them! The two youngest were mesmerized with the... More

The last time I was here there was major construction going on. One of my and my little guy's favorite areas (the music room) was no longer available--which was a bit of a disappointment. The ThinkShop is always a fun time. There are lots of areas for children to learn in, but hopefully the museum takes time to get all... More

Discover, play and learn together as a family. There are plenty of activities for anyone age 1 to 101! We spent several hours playing in the pretend grocery store, on the farm and outside. There are classes my 6 yo can take too! Well worth the money and time spent!

I've visited the Family Museum in Bettendorf many times with my two children. They absolutely love the place. It is always clean and it is big enough to handle the busiest days. The exhibits are interactive and it helps children (and adults) learn about the local area.

We bought an annual pass and my 5-year old son loves to visit nearly every weekend. Very interactive and the staff is super friendly. If you have children under the age of 10 you won't be disappointed.

Great indoor interactive museum that will enthrall the toddler, preschool and lower elementary set. Great small outdoor play area when the weather is nice. Super place for classes and camps for preschool and elementary school children. Great dance program for those not interested in the area's competition geared studios or just wanting to test the dance waters for their little... More
