  • Took my 2.5 year old here to play for the morning. We had planned to spend all morning playing but after 30 minutes she informed me she was all done. We had seen the entire museum in that amount of time. We would have loved to play outside for a bit but workers had closed the garden area. They claimed they didn't want mud being drug in the building. The rain had stopped several hours before. There just wasn't enough to keep us busy to make it worth the cost.
  • Great place for the kids to explore and play. Family membership is a great deal if you're local. Special classes are so also fun for families, extra special learning experience experience. We love to pack a picnic lunch on the summer and eat at the picnic tables.
  • There's plenty to do here for a few hours or so. They have things to do outside and inside which is great if there's nice weather. It's not to expensive and I know our daughter loves going and enjoys doing everything.
  • Very nice atmosphere and child friendly. Excellent variety of different and interesting activities.
  • Great place for kids to learn and have fun. Would highly recommend for field trips

Where to stay in Lancaster

If your trip to Pennsylvania's "Dutch Country" includes a budget for luxurious accommodations, stay at a resort in the city of Lancaster. Though quite pricey, the city's resorts offer access to on-site restaurants, fitness centers, game rooms, indoor pools, and championship golf courses. For something less expensive, consider staying at a bed and breakfast in the picturesque Amish countryside. Inns just a short ride from downtown Lancaster offer good food and comfortable rooms, plus free parking and complimentary Wi-Fi.
