Great place for families
May 2021
When we have the grandkids we always love going to the family museum we spend hours there. There is so much to do for the price, its one of the best kid friendly museums in our area!

New Year's Eve party was probably too busy
Jan 2020 • Family
This facility probably violated the fire code when it hosted the New Year's Eve party as there were wall-to-wall people in that building. It was too hectic for our one Year olds to be walking around and actually have access to toys and activities because the bigger kids were rushing in-and-out even faster. I would be resistant to return for a party here, it's to busy.

This is the place to go! TONS of things to see and do. Almost all hands on. Inside and outside. This is the place to take young children.

kids love it
Apr 2019 • Couples
4 and 5 yr old girls, both absolutely love it. We all had a good time and the activities on the 2nd floor are great. The guy who runs the clay and art center is fantastic!

Great variety of activites including some cool special events
Mar 2019 • Family
My wife and I have been there a number of times with grandchildren. Most recently there was a day focusing on comics and comic book characters. Three young women were dressed as super heroes and there was an appearance by a TV cartoon character: the kids there were pumped. Highlights of "permanent" exhibits include a construction area where you can help a child construct an object such as an airplane. Always popular are a group of connected water pools inside and outside (during summer). I'm not sure why but a lot of kids are attracted to the little store with merchandise such as veggies, fruit, dry goods, etc. Kids ,can 'harvest' items outside, restock, checkout, etc. Overall something for a wide variety of childhood preferences.

Too much to choose from! Love the hands-on!
Sep 2018
I like the water table they have that helps teach children about dams and other ways to control water not only to help an area from flooding but also to help use the water for energy! The scarf blower is fun as well as the area to build tracks for balls to be blown around! So many hands-on stations!!!

Great for dreary days
Jan 2019 • Family
We are members and often go when the weather outside in Iowa just isn't cooperating. It's great to let a 4 year old have fun for a few hours. The tough part is getting them to leave! We've loved it for our children from ages 1 and beyond.
