I was skeptical going to the Turkey Hill Experience since I had heard mixed reviews. But it exceeded my expectations. Even with our young kids (7, 3, 2, and 9 months), everyone had a really great time.
The best part was the three-step process of creating your own ice cream flavor, designing the packaging, and recording the commercial. The kids loved seeing themselves on the screen and picking the different art to go on the package. And of course, they LOVED being able to go up to the counter to get ice cream and drinks. Fortunately, the museum wasn't too crowded so we were able to do everything we wanted.
We also liked all the photo ops between getting inside an ice cream carton or posing as a football or baseball player. I appreciated the rocking chairs around the place so we could just relax. The kids also liked going into the freezer, milking the cow, and climing into an old milk truck. And it was interesting to hear about the history of the family who founded Turkey Hill and the way milk used to be delivered.
The visit wouldn't be complete without stopping downstairs at the cafe. Our friends got ice cream, while I ordered a kids' meal, which was really reasonably priced and included a sandwich, applesauce and lemonade. And my husband loved his diet iced tea.
We're already talking about our return visit!
