great for small children

My 3 & 4 year old grandchildren loved it. There are several play areas with items for different interests. In the summer there is also an outdoor area.

This is our go to destination. Anytime I am off, the kids ask to go. They love to build with the blocks, serve me pizza from the kids resturant, do a puppet show, and just be kids. They can have hours of fun. For me, just watching them enough themselves is a selling point. They really thought like kids when... More

The many Hands-On exhibits are a delight for young children and parents will enjoy them also. The outdoor Gardens are a nice summer treat. Birthday parties there are fun and educational.

Tremendous variety of activities - some extremely unique. For example, had an interactive "stock market" for investing to see the risks and rewards. Four monitors for "trading" were available wherein one player could impact another with buying and selling.

They moved this musuem to a bigger area just before Lakeside park in what you to be a grocery store, so very easy parking. Great fun things for the family, great outdoor area we even got to pick vegetables and herbs the day we were there. Great staff. A must see!

I have a godson who really enjoys his visits to the museum which offers a variety of interactive exhibits and educational displays. Lots of free parking and the staff is excellent. Weekly programs are taught and he loves them

We are regular visitors to the one in naperville Illinois and have taken the kids to the one in Appleton. The Fond du Lac museum is on the right path, just needs to step up their game.

We have enjoyed this museum for years both in their original location and their new larger location. Lots of fun things for the kiddos to do and lots of bright colors and hands on imagination stuff to keep their senses churning. My son was last there at age 6… I did feel that last time that we had somewhat outgrown... More

our grandkids love going there, but there always seems to be something broken. The moved to a bigger building - I liked the old one better. Kids can go outside here. I guess kids have fun and grandparents are just there to watch and do a few things.

Paying $6 for a one year old who cannot do much here was not worth it. Its only free for under one, I think this should be under two. Make sure you know there is a membership as the girls at the front desk do not tell you and were not friendly. Yes it is posted, but lets face it... More
