Behind EdVenture's doors, are nine world-class exhibit galleries, a library, learning laboratories, resource centers and other visitor amenities.

The highlight for my kids is always playing inside Eddie, who is a huge kid with a playground built inside of him. The kids get to explore his various organs and always find it interesting.

Another popular room is the grocery store with plenty of play groceries and cash registers that can really scan the food. The only problem is that the room is normally really crowded and can be total chaos. Of course, what else would you expect at a children's museum?

If you're just visiting Columbia and looking for a great way to entertain the kids for a few hours, EdVenture is a great place to visit.

Our kids love visiting. Everything is interactive and hands on. The kid sized grocery store was a hit as well as Snowville. The kids never get tired of traveling through Big Eddy and his stomach. They get a kick out of seeing what he ate for lunch.

My family has a membership and our daughters go at least once every month or two. Every time we go they find something new that they love.

Grandsons loved it! It was a place that is for them and all about them. The staff was excellent. Even as an adult I enjoyed seeing them have fun. Will return next time I'm in the area.
