This better for young kids. But some interesting things to see and do. Bit pricey for what it was though.

The Boonshoft is a wonderful place for families. There is so much to do and see. Our grandchildren love going to the Boonshoft. They love the rope ladder, the animals, playing in the grocery and the pizza store. They have a small lunch room and we take a "picnic" lunch to have a break.

I think it's an interesting place, but it's mainly just a giant playground. The entire upstairs is just differently themed play areas, plus a few exhibits. Downstairs is only a couple of exhibits. I don't think it's worth the price. We don't plan on returning.

So much to see and to do here.My kids loved this place. It was a fun and neat place to go with the kids especially on a rainy day! They really enjoyed watching the staff feed the otters in the zoo. Would recommend to others with children and would go again in the future.

We have had a membership for the last 3 years. We love it here and it's great for all age kids. My son is 5 and it keeps his interest for hours. We love the zoo part of the museum.
