My husband said this was one of the best interactive museums he's ever been to. We all enjoyed the exhibits, but were particularly impressed with the make your own ice cream flavor, make your own packaging, and make your own commercial activities. The kids (9&10) are still talking about their own unique flavors. We were there on a Sundae Sunday, which was a fabulous bonus as we LOVE Turkey Hill ice cream and we got to make a nice big one with any flavors we wanted as part of admission. Glad we stopped! I should say we got one of those voucher deals with discounted tix, so we weren't concerned so much with pricing.

Who doesn't love ice cream? Well, we do, but we were shocked at the admission cost and hoped it would be worth the money. Sadly, it wasn't. There's a lot of reading which quickly bored the youngsters. Some of the interactive displays are fun, but overall, not what we hoped for nor was it worth the price they charge at the door.

We are adults but really enjoyed this! We were practically the only people there, so that may have influenced our decision. Great for school age children, very small children would probably not benefit much, better if they can interact and understand the displays. Loved the free ice cream, which is given in extremely generous samples, more like a full scoop. You can only have one at a time, but you can have as many as you want. I only had one but I confess I would have been a complete glutton if I let myself.

I don't understand the bad reviews, here. My mother (senior), daughter (11), and I went to this not really expecting a whole lot because it was super cheap. We had SO MUCH FUN!! We were there for about 2 hours. There was so much about the region's history in addition to the company's history. There were lots of interactive games that all of us enjoyed. The ice cream was just icing on the cake! Well done, Turkey Hill!

We visited on a cold and rainy fall afternoon, had the place to ourselves and totally enjoyed every minute. I would imagine that during peak times it would difficult to enjoy the interactive activities. There are different stations that allow you to create a flavor, name it, create a container, film a commercial and email what you've created to yourself. You also get to taste test a bunch of different ice cream and iced tea flavors. It was fun for both my kids and us, but again if it's crowded it would probaly be a hassle.
