I took my nephew here and he had a great time dressing up, making crafts and being inside the bubble. His favorite thing was being inside the bubble we must have done it over and over for 20 minutes.

If you have children with you in Gettysburg you must do this! DOnt wait for a rainy day because they have cool stuff outside too. This museum (more like a historical play house for kids)is owned by women who were once school teachers. They memorize each childs name and when the children arrive they give an explanation of the activites. My girls loves the 1800's play area and the arts and crafts room. The public library is right next store so if you wanted to make a day you could go there too. It was once used as EIsenhowers home or something.

We went during the week around 3pm. One other family was there and it was a lot of fun for our 2 year old and us! I can see where it would be challenging during busy times. We spent 2 hours and that was because we had to go. Could easily spend more time. We also got to keep the cute paintings our daughter made. We went there after the first hour of a self guided auto tour of the battlefield. Good break for our little one.

This is a must see if you have kids 3-8! All I can say is they have a craft room to die for! After visiting this museum you are so tempted to go out and find a quaint little 200 year old row home and make one of your own!

My daughter had her 8th birthday party here last year and she loved it. I worried that it would be too "young" for her but the rooms they had were perfect. She and her friends played in the colonial dress up area downstairs. They loved the giant body bubble and they loved going upstairs to draw and play in the blacklight room. They weren't too impressed with the construction room but that's to be expected for these girls. :) The staff could not have been more helpful. They made a nice little banner, cleaned up the art room (where we had cake) before and after us. They also let us store her cake in their fridge while we played and had lunch at the school rec yard before it was our time to go in to explore and more.
Since her party, she's been asking to go back. It's a great place to spend a few hours playing.
