  • I was very disappointed with our visit. I had been there 10 years ago to volunteer in college and I don’t think anything has changed. Many things were broken and missing. We struggled to find an hour ...  more »
  • The museum is inside a renovated two story farm house set on some acreage with a lot of green space. Although it's right in the city of Fargo, once you're in there it doesn't feel like "city". When yo...  more »
  • Although small, lots of things for young kids to do. However, needs updating (example: Velcro wouldn't stick in farm). Nice outdoor area. Train for kids to ride for additional cost. Our 3 year old son...  more »

  • We walked in and were greeted by a friendly staff. They were a quiet group. As we started walking through the place we both noticed how much cleaning it needed. Everything there seems too old to function properly. We tried to velcro an apple to the wooden tree and it wouldn't stick at all. All the setups they had seemed decades old. When we went upstairs, there were a bunch of creepy dolls to interact with (press the button and listen, take out a bunch of cloth rope that is imitating intestines). It almost seemed like a horror place. If you have a little kid, they will have some fun for sure. It's just tough as a parent to think about how unclean it is. Outside is a solid place to stop by afterwards. The staff and the outdoors brought this place up to 2 stars. They had a good playground and a train that takes rides every hour on the hour (1 dollar per person). Admission to the place is 5 dollars a person for anyone over 1 years old. For the 3 of us, the price wasn't worth it (once isn't bad but not more). They also have a membership which was 70 dollars and includes both parents and all kids.
  • I love the concept of this museum! My 3 year old son likes coming here, but I wish they focused more on the upkeep and repair of things. A lot of toys/displays are broken/torn.
  • It really is a great place for kids. Need's a little updating and some love put back into it but overall the kid's don't notice that. Friendly staff.
  • Great place for kids. Definitely needs updating, not that my three year old cared.
  • This place could be really awesome, but it isn't maintained at all! Most of the exhibits have something broken or wrong with them, or they are just plain worn-out. Everything is super dirty. And the place is expensive for what you're getting to experience. I feel like someone could really make something out of the place, and it's definitely something that's needed for the area. It's just not being executed the way it should be.
