This isn't really a children's museum as much as it is a toddlers play area. Our little one loved it and could have stayed much of the day. This is not really a place to bring older children as they would get bored quickly. The...More

Have been to the Childrens Museum with the grandkids several times! Always a fun, learning event. Last time was for our 5 year olds birthday party...special room for the party and the kids had the whole place to themselves! It was a great time!

Looking for something to do with a grandchild, your own children or even for a birthday party. Play and learn is the bottom line at the Children's Musueum. Bright colors and so may activities are a sure draw for this fun place to visit.

The term "museum" is misleading. It is a "ply center", geared toward young children. We felt the receptionist should have told us before paying...our 12yo was bored, making it a waste of money.

Good for an hour or two of entertainment with toddlers. Kids over 4 yo likely won't be amused unless joined by friends. The woman working behind the desk did not greet me upon entering-she didn't even look up or respond after I said hello. I...More

We found ourselves visiting Great Falls with our 3.5-year-old who badly needed to get out of the car and do something fun. Unfortunately, the spring weather wasn't cooperating, so we needed something indoors. I came in to the Children's Museum of Montana not expecting too...More

Our 2-year-old grandson did lots of exploring in the multiple museum stations, but, ultimately, the 'train tracks' were his favorite. Plenty of options for toddlers - elementary children. Staff was friendly. Great value.
