  • My 3 year old couldn't get enough of this place! It has all kind of things to intrigue your child and more than likely you! I personally liked making an animation and could have kept at it all day, but I stepped aside and let all the other young kids have their turn too. So if you don't want to adult, here is your safe haven from doing exactly that!
  • I chaperoned my kid's kindergarten class. We all had a blast and learned a lot at our own pace. The Works welcomes each person at their unique level and lets each of us revel in the adventure of science, invention and engineering.
  • A very cool place. We were flat out told to let the kids touch everything in the museum, except the 2-story K'nex tower, understandably. My boy had a very fun day for his 4th birthday! We adults did too!
  • It was a fun visit. The exhibits were fun but not a lot there. The price tag is a little steep for what you get. Very educational and worth the visit though.
  • Our 8 year-old didn't want to leave. Way better than the Children's Museum in St. Paul for a self-proclaimed future engineer.
