  • I took my grand kids recently, ages 6, 5 and 2. They all enjoyed it.It's not a big museum like in Indianapolis, but it is nice for Decatur to have. 
  • 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.
  • Great place for kids to play on a rainy day
  • We had my son's second birthday party here, and it was amazing! Alot for the kids to do, was actually entertaining for us adults, and overall was a great day. They have a eating area on the second floor that we sat at and ate cake and whatnot. Great time, and the people that work there were great as well. Very friendly!
