  • We had a deal for half price, so for us, it was a sweet deal. Parking wasn't the easiest, we didn't know where to walk from the ramp we parked in. But the museum itself is very cute, TONS of different stuff for kids to play with. Can walk through the same "exhibit" a few times and find something new about it each time. My kids' favorites are the pretend city bus and the grocery store, but there's only one checkout lane so it's a constant fight between a bunch of kids who is going to be the "beeper!" Nice separate area for eating inside, no food available there besides bagged snacks so bring a bag lunch - lockers are free, you just have to give them your drivers license.
  • I have a membership to this museum and I take my son there at least once a month. I also have a membership at the art museum and they are across the street from each other so often we do a half day at each one. My son loves the Betty Brinn and we have always had positive experiences there. We have gone there with his physical therapist and done physical therapy on the foam blocks in the pocket park and it is more fun for my son that way because it feels more like playing and less like exercise for him. The staff have been very understanding of this. My only complaint is that they recently removed several exhibits with ramps that kids could roll balls down and replaced them with batting cages and baseball themed stuff. The balls and ramps were one of my son's favorite activities and he does not like the baseball stuff, I wish they had kept the ramps and maybe just moved them to another area when they put in the baseball exhibit. That is my only complaint though and I would recommend this museum to anyone who has small children and lives in Milwaukee.
  • Went for the first time on my eldest daughter's​ field trip. I really enjoyed myself so much to the point I will be taking all four of my kids the very next day. My son will fall in love with the vehicles. His twin sister will fall in love with the pretend play food and stores. My eldest will fall in love with everything and so will my eight year old. I highly recommend this place!
  • The museum was a great place to spend with my family on a rainy Sunday afternoon. My daughter especially loved the grocery store and the bus. Some of the exhibits weren't working which was disappointing. The staff at the admissions desk were hot and cold - one woman was extremely nice and made small talk. Another one though was short, rude, crabby, and kind of ruined what had been a good day up until then. I think the admissions desk staff would benefit from sensitivity training and how to be nice to people. All in all a good time was had by all.
  • Cool, well thought out exhibits. Many are very involved to get the full value out of them requiring more attention span than most kids have. My main issue is the number of exhibits that are broken or missing pieces. We got here right when it opened so I know that wasn't due to kids misplacing parts during the cource of the day. It's also a little expensive for what it is. Most of that cost is due to the location: the single most expensive piece of real estate in the entire state of Wisconsin.
