We packed a picnic and had lunch at an outside table near the playground. The kids enjoyed playing in the house, riding the train, playing mini golf, and using the playground equipment. No carousel the day we were there. The house has some random trivia...More

Great place to bring the kids. You can paint, milk a fake cow and create your own puppet show. Great experience

We took our grandson here last summer and occupied about 15 minutes of our time! Activities had parts missing, parts broken, unclean, or no instructions. Very dirty, outdated. Fargo Parks dept should tour this for themselves and definitely change things. We brought our kids there...More

The museum is fun for children which is the most important but it needs some updates. Some of the rooms are unique and interesting but others need to be completely renovated. Not a must see attraction.

Although small, lots of things for young kids to do. However, needs updating (example: Velcro wouldn't stick in farm). Nice outdoor area. Train for kids to ride for additional cost. Our 3 year old son enjoyed it

My kids enjoy this place. There is lots to do and we can spend a few hours here easily. Hands on items and during the summer months a train ride! Also has picnic tables and a play area.
