  • My kids love going to the different children's museums around the states. This one is spectacular, very busy on weeknds. 
  • My 18 month old had a lot of fun exploring the under 5 area. We spent about 1.5 hrs there and it was time well spent. There was an upstairs area we didn't make it to. Maybe next time. 
  • Incredible facility. Our kids (under 6) were occupied for 3 hours. Art. Blocks. Cool gadgets and a giant climbing structure. Wonderful hands on fun 
  • A lot of fun. Three floors of fun, plus seasonal outdoor areas as well. Great place to go and let kind explore. There is a kid friendly cafe as well.
  • My daughter loved it, so I give it 4 stars, and it wasn't bad, but I had higher hopes for the museum. It was smaller than I expected and very, very loud and chaotic. It didn't have the typical "museum" flow that I expected either. My daughter was mostly interested in the playground type parts - so the majority of the museum may be more suited to personalities that like to sit quietly and build or color, etc. She had fun so I won't complain, it just wasn't what I was expecting.
  • It's not the best children's museum my family had been to. However the outdoor space and the cabin are a unique touch and the price is cheap. So all in all its a decent place to take your kids for a couple hours.
  • I feel that is run down, not to mention American Girl Doll gives the museum around a million dollars. A little more dedication to America Girl Doll, than three dolls would be nice. The museum could put the money towards fixing it up. I understand it is a children's museum but some more things for 8-13 would be cool.
  • We have 3 Kids 6 and under. We have solutely don't miss the children's museum in Madison when we come. We go to Children's Museums all over the Midwest. Madison is different. the part we love the best is the Rooftop Green Space.
