  • This was a pretty cool place, but I am not sure I would pay for an annual membership to this children's museum. This is a four-story building, but only the first two stories are for kids. During our visit, half of the second story was closed down, so maybe I will update this post to a 5 star, when we visit again. I loved the crafts and the 4 and under area downstairs rocked, but I have a 4 and 8 year old. So...do I allow my 8 year old to play in the 4 and under area or go upstairs to the 4 and up area. So then we went to the crafts area, where they could both paint on the windows and make crafts. That was awesome! Otherwise, it is not like other Children's Museums, it is more like an arts & craft children's museum. It is a great children's museum!
  • My son and I are visiting from out of town and I know we were both a bit eager to finally do some sightseeing. I brought him to this museum where we spent 4 hours! He's 12 months and very mobile, so it was very nice to have a space for such a small wee one to play without being trampled by the larger kids. The first floor has a section for 0-5 years, which is were he had the most fun. The other areas of the museum is just as interactive and accommodating for small children, but you of course, should still watch and engage in play along with them. I'm in town for 2 weeks, and we will most certainly come back. The cost is $7.95 for 12 months and up.
  • Our 2.5 and 4 year old LOVED this place!!! Bring an extra change of clothes/shoes.... The water area was a hit for over 20 minutes!!! Art area is also a huge hit. Wish we lived closer. A Madison gem!
  • What a great place to spend hours at with your kids ! The attractions vary from interest for a young child up to teen age kids . I have taken visiting relatives from other countries with their kids and they liked it too ! The staff was friendly and helpful too . Make sure to enjoy the rooftop area too : - )
  • Great place to take your kids. My 4 and 2 year old both loved it. Will definitely be back.
