As a preschool teacher here on vacation from Iowa, I thought that Wonderscope was one of the BEST Children's Museums I have EVER seen! I took my two young boys (ages 6 and 4) alone this afternoon and we spent close to 4 hours investigating, exploring, learning and laughing. I LOVED that it was in an old school--what a great use of space and as other reviewers mentioned, it was nice to have different themes in various rooms. As opposed to other large museums we have visited in Minneapolis and Denver, I knew my boys would stay in one room until we were ready to move on. I was so impressed with the vast amount of props available in each room. (It didn't bother me at all that things weren't sparkling clean!) It was much more meaningful to have tons of COOL tools in the vet clinic, real x-rays, and cages, for example. I appreciate the wide variety of materials available in the Market and Tinker Space and was glad that I saved the H2O and Art room for last since they got wet and I didn't have to carry their art work around the museum the entire time. I love the variety of experiences my boys got to enjoy from chalk to facepaints, dramatic play environments to ramps. Hands down our favorite was the Speedway room with hundreds of golf balls and interchangeable loops/tracks. This was the best $20 the 3 of of us could have spent on a rainy day!!!!
