  • They have alot to do for all ages and go our of there way to do fun stuff for the kids. Include showing movies at the planetarium.

They also have a few live animals including a sloth which is interesting to watch
  • We visited Boonshoft over the Memorial Day weekend. It was a great experience. We plan many more visits as our son continues to grow. So much to do!
  • My family love's this place we buy the yearly passes for the family and get the discounts at the other museum's and some of the zoo's it's well worth the money and we can go when ever we want love it.
  • It's cute but not worth the price they ask for. We were there only question 1 hr and saw everything in the entire museum.
  • I have 4 kids ranging from 11 months-5 1/2 years old and they all loved it! There is so much for everyone to do, for kids of all ages! I've brought my 9 year old niece with me before too and she loved it as well! We ended up buying a family pass so we can go back as we want! There is a little cafe area with vending machines and where you can sit and eat. You can bring your own food & drinks in.
