  • I have been going here for over a year with my 2.5 year old son. We always have a blast. They are always adding new exhibits and updating.  more »
  • This one is definitely geared at around 5/6 and under which is where 3 of my kids were at age-wise. They LOVED IT. I had a 12 & 13 year old as well who found plenty of things to play with or art to...  more »

  • It was a nice getaway on a rainy day perfect for little ones. Mostly clean. The water zone down stairs has had an odd smell the last several times we've went the is not appealing, not chlorine smell just something off. We did the open arts and crafts and it was wonderful staff members were friendly and very helpful. It's a bit smaller than the other children's museums we've been to but overall still a great way to spend the day to get out of the heat or rain.
  • This place is amazing for kids. Were new to the area and first came here on a field trip with my kids school. We were so impressed, we have been back several times since.
  • Although it says "museum", this place is more like an itty bitty city for kids and kids at heart. It was voted THE Best Of The Chippewa Valley Volume One Reader Poll 2019.They provide a safe, educational place for children and their parents to explore, imagine, play, learn, and grow. The place has 3 floors with different exhibit areas - some are permanent, some are not. The main floor is where kids can put on a stage performance or do role plays in the mini community. Kids 3 years old and younger can explore the Toddler Park, a decent size area where they can crawl and play safely. There's also a Reading Corner with plenty of reading materials and Body Smarts where little kids can climb in, crawl and slide down. Things that you should probably know: 1. This place is close for 2 weeks maintenance and cleaning in the month of September - so if you want to book a birthday party, you might want to contact them in advance for your options. 2. You can download their activities for the month to view their upcoming events. You can also go to their website and check Parent Hub for things you need to know. 3. They have one time passes and annual memberships. 4. You can bring your food inside and eat on the third floor, just don't bring peanuts or peanut butter as some kids are allergic to nuts. 5. It is a good idea to bring extra clothes for kids in case they get too wet playing with water in the basement. So you might ask, why only 4 stars? I give this place 4 stars because it hasn't changed much over the years. Some of the stuff are not being utilized or broken - like we were never able to try the recording room. The mystery log has 3 out of 5 slots empty. The John Deere tractor's steering wheel is also broken. The grocery store and grub could use new stock of items. I wish they have more interactive activities as well. Overall, it is a great place for kids to burn their energy doing what they do best - which is play.
  • Love this place. The kids had so much fun. We will be back.
  • Great place to bring your kids during the colder months. I love all of the different areas and how it's set up like a small town. 3 floors of activities!! Great for kids of all ages, including myself. Arts n Crafts areas all over the place.
