  • I attended this museum as a chaperone for my child’s field trip. The museum in of itself is very informative and well supplied with historical artifacts but the staff is utterly terrible. Their distain for children and their life in general is grossly apparent in every interaction. Their attitudes made what could have been an exciting opportunity to learn more like being trapped in a totalitarian state. Kids are exhausting and the staff wants to protect the artifacts, I get that, but these children we’re perfectly behaved and there was no need for their terrible attitudes. Lighten up and engage and don’t act like it’s a bother for you to teach these kids. I would go back but not if we have to listen to the staff
  • Great for younger kids, 3rd grade and below. Lots of activities, special events. Lake of the woods park great place. Open every day after Memorial day.
  • Took my son to an activity here, it was very organized and a great price. We also like going downstairs to play and outside to enjoy the park
  • Nice museum to show life on the prairie long ago. Popular place for families to visit.
  • Your museum is very Excellent and customer service is great too You have a lot history in a building in the park to
