  • This place is so amazing!!! The staff is great and they always have something going on as far as events. The museum is educational and fun. The toy store is fantastic too. Five star for sure!
  • Such a fun time and so much to keep the boys occupied
  • Very friendly and helpful staff, plenty of hands on activities, and bright, colorful, and relaxing environment. Does need some love with some lights (easy wiring) and some tables out front need a screw or to be repainted. Otherwise its be a 6 out of 5 stars. My kids are hooked.
  • Holy adorable!!! I felt it was the most "interactive" of the museums we've been too yet (above Madison, Milwaukee and Appleton so far anyway). Compared to the other three, it is the smallest. But that didn't seem to matter. In fact, it almost was liberating because it felt very safe... and like we didn't have to completely hover. And despite being smaller, their exhibits felt more "hand's on" and really kept the kids more entertained for longer than I've witnessed at the other museums. Also we absolutely LOVED the new black light room. (It would have been fun to play with more than three scarfs though... so please buy more). But overall, very well done!!!! WIll definitely be back the next time we're on vacation up there! Kids ages: 5, 4 and 16 months.
  • Always a great place to go with the kids
