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

I didn't like that the parent has a admission charge. Most things were not working and my kids kept walking around trying to find entertainment. Good concept, just needs updated and more interactive items. Good for 1-3 ages.

The Children's Museum of Montana has fantastic staff and lots of activities for kids of many ages, from dress-up, to playing pirate or sailor or banker, to Lego. There's also a cafe for the parents, although I haven't tried it yet.

We really enjoyed our visit. My 3, 8, and 10 year olds all found plenty to do that kept their attention. It is a very inexpensive afternoon of fun and learning. If we had stayed longer, I would have loved to cuddle with my little...More

It was a good place for smaller kids. My teen enjoyed it and was polite, but I could tell from the look on her face that it was not really set up for her age level.

great place for kids. upstairs gets little warm in summer, but other wise kids had lots of fun! My sons enjoyed the legos upstairs and my little girl liked all the dress up stuff they had downstairs.

Needs some cleaning up and more friendly staff. The two staff members working very rude and just glared at everyone. The lady working the front desk was very rude and snappy towards everyone. I am sure this is because we interrupted what she was doing...More
