My 18 month old grandson had a blast at this museum. He cried when we had to leave. There was so much to do, interact play stations at every level, learning toys, hands-on activities, and very interesting exhibits. This was very fun and reasonably priced.

Geared for all ages, this wonderful museum covers history and science, the arts, fun, and the uniqueness of La Crosse and the Mississippi River. Be prepared to get wet as you race boats and learn about lock and dams.

We have had a membership to the Children's Museum for over a year, which I totally recommend. It makes it easier to go for a short stop and to not feel bad for calling it quits early if a kid is losing it. They do...More
