We have an annual membership and I take my daughter there often. My daughter loves going there! I wish their hours were more school kid friendly and we'd definitely go even more. I've been to 3 other CMOMs (Bozeman, Helena and Missoula) and in my opinion, ours is the best.

Something for the little kids that like hands on! Our little ones really like going there. I just don't like the fee for the parents to enter with them, makes it pretty pricy for some, but well worth it.

We had a great time! There are two floors of fun. We enjoyed the dress up area and puppet show. I loved the fact they send home 2 books per kid. They have an entire area just for legos!

We visit our grandchildren in Montana multiple times each year and almost always bring them to the Children's Museum. While it doesn't compare with the children's museums in St.Paul or Phoenix it's a great little museum for a smaller community and our grandchildren love it. In fact the size makes it much less intimidating unless you run into a school... More

We took the kids to the museum to see what it was all about, along with the idea of letting them burn some energy. The parking is free easily accessed from the street be aware Great falls is full of one way streets in the city. Three staff members were very friendly and very informative. The museum is divided into... More

We are visiting while on vacation. This was a wonderful little place for kids to interact and use imaginative play! It is an older building, but you can tell they are obviously doing the best they can with the space they have. They have lots of spaces for kids to explore and use their imaginations!!! Grocery store, dress up room,... More

I took my toddler here for the first time not really knowing what to expect since I had read some reviews about it prior to coming. My little girl had lots of fun. We were here for almost 2.5 hours and there is lots to do and explore. There is a boat, a couple of slides, a dress up area,... More

I first reviewed the museum in 2012 and was very disappointed. However, last year we had to go there again for a birthday party and I was pleasantly surprised. There is so many more exhibits and it was much cleaner than the last time we were there. The improvement is so great that we decided to become members. My children... More

We went to this location looking for something to do with the kids. The younger kids had a lot of fun but older ones looked for a place to sit and read. Mostly clean, with multiple hand washing stations. There is a bit of science to the "museum", but I would honestly call this place a indoor play park.

Thank Rod D
