It is a small town, so don't expect it to be the Betty Brinn in Milwaukee or on the Madison. However, there is enough here to keep my kids entertained for 1-2 hours. We have a membership and 3 and 4 year old go there at least once a week.

We have two sons, (4 and 6). They loved making the machines move with the cards. All of the activities were perfectly suited for their age group. There are three floors of imaginary play. It was hard to get them to leave. We stayed nearly two hours. Great value and a lot of FUN!

A & B C.M. is a great place to bring kids for a couple hours of fun, or for birthday parties. Lots of interactive displays and things to play with including a "sky crawl" which is a network of tunnels 10 feet up in the air, consisting of rope.

Rachel's Favorite is a "Rube Goldberg" contraption which the kids just love--it has been recently upgraded with cheering sound effects and flashing lights.

The 3rd floor has a nautical theme with a replica ship, and a scale lighthouse. The lighthouse has lots of controls, lights, and sounds that the kids can play with.

Overall great fun!

Be prepared to spend about two hours at this Museum. Great value for money at just $6 per person. Constructed out of an old residential house, there are three floors of fun for kids of all ages plus a large garden area outside. Many hands on gadgets to play with to keep you little ones amused. My two daughters are 7 and 12 and they both had a blast. I would advise anyone with kids to visit this place then go checkout Bookworm Gardens, two of my best attractions for kids in the whole of Sheboygan.

I visited with my daughter and 2 grandchildren ages 1-1/2 and 4. They both had a blast. There are a lot of things for both ages. The most fun is the magic dark room with the big light brite and shadow wall. There are 3 levels plus 2 slides and a long crawl thru tunnel. There is no place to eat lunch in winter (there are picnic tables outside in summer. They do sell several small snacks like gold fish, etc. The entire staff is very friendly. We will definitely go back. The website should say something about the parking. We ended up parking on the street which is metered parking. Once inside we were told there is a free lot 1/2 block away. Would have liked to know that before we poured money into the meter. You can have your hand stamped so you can leave for lunch and come back no charge.

My grandchildren and I just love this place. They always want to go there. It's one time I can keep my 6 yr old grandson off a computer game. there's so much to do! We've been members for 4 yrs now. the only problem I see there is that they need more volunteers, which is why I signed up. The staff is a group of truly dedicated people. They are always looking for ways to improve. This is a wonderful place for children to learn and play!

If you want to enjoy visceral play, this is your destination! It's fantasy, it's practical, and it's beautifully executed. This is a great way to get out of videos, television, and iPads; get your kids back into their bodies with wonder and enchantment!

The building integrates an actual boat from one end of the 3rd floor through the opposite wall. Everything in between is the same boat! There's a honey farm, a full-blown circus car, and oodles more to explore.

I stopped into this museum because the facade was so interesting. I enjoyed this as an adult; every teacher can find inspiration in the effective use of color, space, theme, and design. As a small institution, it truly delivers on its mission!

We took a 2&3 year old here. We had a wonderful time. Unfortunately we had only two hours. The kids probably would’ve been able to spend another hour or two. There were some older children there who were a bit disruptive as they were not the right age. I would say ages up to 10 will enjoy this most. And then adults as well! The absolutely amazing circus exhibit is with admission alone and is a must see.

We are once again visiting with our two grandsons, one now six and one now approaching four. We always enjoy ourselves and love seeing how much fun the boys have. The variety of activities keeps them challenged and engaged at many different levels. The daily entry fee is reasonable and the family rate is worthwhile for families from the area.

We come here every year and we love it every single time. With a large assortment of things to do, from a parascope that reaches for the first to second floor, lots of slides, a net that you can climb through, a huge collection of circus toys, a play grocery store, a play lighthouse and boat, a real fire truck, science section and so much more, this is the place your kid will never want to leave!
