“Great for Little Children”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

A lot of different places to play inside and out. Many kids will get less interested on second and third, but it is good to visit from time to time. They go for variety of activities, but not in depth which is okay for Children's museum.

“great little childrens museum”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

i love that it's small enough so it's not overwhelming for my three-year old and not tiring for me but it's varied enough that my six-year old doesn't get bored after a couple of visits. we have american childrens museum membership (whose awesome benefits will turn into less awesome ones in april 2013), so we go to kohl's pretty often. after more than 10 visits since July, my three-year old can still spend a couple of hours, having a blast.
having said that, i don't know if i'd give it an "excellent" if i had to pay every time. ;)

“If you have small children don't miss this”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Spending a day in the area with small children and finding something you will enjoy and so will they is sometimes hard to do. This museum is wonderful and not as busy as the big ones downtown!

“expensive”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

This site was nice but too expensive for my family to enjoy. There were no specials or deals so i was a little uneasy about this museum.

“Couldn't wait to have grand kids....”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

What a terrific place to take the grand kids when they are here. They always have so much fun with all of the different experiences - but their favorite, of course, is the water exhibits. Might want to bring a change of clothes for the really little ones. I like playing with some of the toys too. We'll be going again in December when the kids come to visit again.
