  • According to our children, they loved it, it was fun, and in my 9 year old's words, "it's kid friendly." Very entertaining and well priced! Would make the visit again. 
  • Wonderful place for kids. The activities are fun and educational. Plan on spending some time because the kids will not want to leave. 
  • We are members of our local Science Museum so we received free admission to this Museum. We stopped on the way home from a family reunion to split up the drive time. This was a great children's museum...  more »

  • There are several different areas for the kids. Seating for parents to watch their kids explore. Gross and fine motor skills along with learning experiences. Adjacent to the zoo for a quick walk over. Picnic areas to eat lunch.
  • My kids love coming here. My oldest is always asking to come here and has a blast every time. Activities don't seem to change, at least not very often, but at least there is a variety to do compared to smaller places I've been to.
  • Museum features many fun activities for kids to enjoy such as: bubble station, climbing apparatus, water works station, mini grocery store.
  • One of Decatur's finest attractions. Great concept and worth the price of admission. The yearly pass for grandparents is a best buy.
  • Enjoyed and loved going
