This place really suprised us in a good way. It was much larger then we thought it would be. Kids had a BLAST, and most parents kept up with their kids, so we didn't have the typical kids running wild problem. Lot of science, and the way the explain it to kids is AMAZING! If you have kids, and want something that will really amaze them and allow them to explore their imagination, this is the perfect place! Also right across the road is the other attraction: Marry Todd Lincoln Birth House..

Fun place for younger kids. Great things to entertain and wonderful hands on experience. Lots to see and touch.

The Explorium looks very tired. Took our granddaughter there - we had visited about 18 months before. Lots of pieces missing, exhibits looked dirty and some were shut down.

We've been to the Explorium a few times, and the kids generally have a good time. The attractions are definitely getting on in years and showing their wear & tear. The kids bounce from exhibit to exhibit pretty quickly because they seem to lose interest, so I wouldn't say this could take up a whole day.

We've been to far better children's museums, but I know the kids have fun, so I guess that makes it worth it.

The exhibits don't seem to change and it is getting on in the years. However, I imagine they do the best they can with the funds they have and no child ever seems bored there.
