I have lived in Milwaukee for 15 years and have always heard of Betty Brinn but never been. Now that I'm a parent, I thought it'd be a great place to bring my 14 month old on a boring winter day. Wrong. $9 a pop...More

Visited not knowing exactly what it was. It is definately for kids. A lot to do there for them. Even some live water life. A great veriety. Plenty to do and there are other activities near by. Go see it, but, only if you have...More
We spent 3 hours there during a cold Saturday morning with our kids ages 5 and 3. They enjoyed themselves but with the current school holiday, the place can be too crowded in the noon. My suggestion, visit early as soon as they open. Nice...More
This reasonably priced kid's museum offers hands-on experiences rather than technology. The kids can stock the shelves, shop, or run the cash register at a store..work in a post office...be a bank teller with a fully stocked drawer of play money. My boys loved the...More
Our's too!~ There is just so much there to grab his attention and engage all of us. I highly recommend for kids (& parents). I only wish they still had their Brewers baseball exhibit, for my grandson's sake...
We spent a very cold Sunday afternoon here with our grandkids, ages 5 and 7. We easily spent two hours checking out the various hands-on activities. We only left because they were hungry and there aren't any restaurants nearby. The youngest kids seemed to particularly...More
My son and I have frequented this museum SO many times and he begs me to go again and again. He is 10 now and technically outgrown it, but you wouldn't knwo that! Betty Brinn has an incredible way of blending science, history and hands...More

This is the BEST review! Thank you so much for your kind words, we hope to see you and your son again soon!
This is a wonderful museum for young children - perhaps up to the age of 8 years or so. Some of the areas are especially set aside for toddlers. My granddaughter was very enthusiastic about many of the exhibits - so much so, that when...More
Eight year old is a perfect age for the Betty Brinn. There is so much to do they will find it fun as they go between each interactive exhibit. You may have a hard time getting them to leave their favorite exhibit.

Hello and thank you for reaching out to the Betty Brinn Children's Museum. We are so pleased to share our exhibit with the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh, it's certainly sure to be a family favorite! Hands-On Harley-Davidson invites children to explore a pretend motorcycle dealership while learning about the people, places and processes that make a community work. The exhibit’s pretend retail setting features two kid-sized motorcycles inspired by a Harley-Davidson Road King® and opportunities to “Dream It!,” Build It!” and “Ride It!” using activities that promote science, technology, engineering and math education.
Children can work together to create a motorcycle using interchangeable custom motor parts and accessories, including seats, saddle bags, mirrors, and a variety of engine components. Once their bike is built, children can gear-up, climb on and select interactive videos that provide a first-person riding experience, including U.S. and international touring routes and a ride through the streets of Milwaukee. Working turn signals, audio and wind effects, and a throttle that controls the speed of the ride complete the experience.
Please feel free to contact us if you should have additional questions!
