Fun for the kids!

My kids love this place! There is so much to do. You could easily spend all day here. Not overpriced either.

Small museum but full of fun imaginative activities for younger kids. My eight year old got bored pretty quickly though. I thought the prices was high for size of museum. Fountain outside at public park was also fun for kids to cool off in.

Was somewhat disappointed with the exhibits. Had not been to this museum in over 20 years. Lots of hands-on exhibits for younger children. Nine year old granddaughter enjoyed the TV station, however not many activities for 12 year old. Price was steep. Cost me $28.00 for 4 people; 1 Senior, 1 Adult, 12 year old and 9 year old. Several... More

I took my 3 children and also went with a family friend and her nephew. It wasn't as great as I thought it would be. My 9 year old was ready to go within 5 min. He only enjoyed the ambulance he could wander through. My 5 year old was a little more entertained but still bored with each spot... More

This museum offered an area perfect for toddlers to enjoy and learn as they play. I thought is was a little pricey at frst until I saw what an outstading job they have with limited space.

What a great museum! The kids, ages 9, 6 and 2, each found something that occupied their attention for the entire three hours we spent at the museum. The grocery store, the restaurant, and the bubbles were particularly fascinating to all three. The staff is great and they answered any questions the children had for them. In Lafayette's climate, when... More

Lots of great activities for kids of all ages! Great place to spend a rainy day or any day. Lots of educational exhibits and hands on activity. Bubble making, shopping, hands on science fun! Pre schoolers love to go again and again! Fun activities for parents to do with their children! Some activities stay the same and some change. Great... More

This is a great museum for kids to just explore and have tangible hands on learning. My children enjoy the grocery store with the kids sized shopping carts as well as the Diner and Kitchen. They also have a dental chair, a real ambulance, and a tv station. But the ultimate fun is the giant bubble wands! Its fun and... More
