We were in Duluth for the Bentleyville Lights. As we needed an afternoon activity for our 4 1/2 y.o. grandson we went to this museum. It was perfect for him. Since there was only one other child (a girl) playing on the first floor he...More

It is for very young children. Not much learning things. My daughter was bored within 15 minutes. Staff was okay. The lady at the front desk was helpful however the staff walking around was not. They looked like they didn’t like their job. Would never...More

The Duluth Children's Museum isn't the biggest children's museum. But what it has going for it is a periodically updating first floor with passionate staff and a dynamic building layout for small children. Well worth a visit!

We have a large family with 5 kids ages 4-13. This museum was appropriate for the youngest two of them. The 8 year old played but was a bit too big for most things. The two older boys had fun watching their siblings but there...More

Super friendly staff. The lower level of the museum I think is geared toward the older ages with plenty of activities for 'making' things and exploring games and activities like origami and juggling. Our 2 year old had no interest in any of that but...More

My preschooler enjoyed playing here all morning. My toddler enjoyed testing his limits jumping off everything. A fun place to be when the weather is not good.

This place is fun for about five and younger. We should have been informed of that when we brought our nine year old grandson. Rediculous! It’s very tiny and costs $9. We were there for about 15 minutes. Not much there. There were many people...More

We stopped by the children’s museum and it only took about an hour for our boys to get bored. It was ok, but there are better ones around. There are some activities, but nothing that keeps the kids interested for very long. Probably wouldn’t go...More
