With grandkids in the Milwaukee area, it can be challenging to find fun, educational places to take them particularly in inclement weather. We "discovered" the Betty Brinn on our last visit and stayed... read more »
I have a 6 year old and wanted to take her to a children's museum while on vacation, she didn't find this to be interesting at all. It was for pre-kindergarten age. She liked the gift shop toys. Major... read more »
The Children's Museum could be a fantastic place, if it wasn't getting shabby. I just came back from a visit with my granddaughter, and literally most of the exhibits that had any electronic equipment were broken. Other exhibits were disorganized, like the grocery store, or were missing elements, like the golf ball roller coasters with no golf balls. Blocks, construction toys, and craft materials were all over the place. I understand kids are messy, but someone should be cleaning up the after them. I don't think this is the parents job, since most are there watching their children or playing with them. There were three employees at the front desk, but only one was admitting people. Can't employees keep the place up? Can't the institutions that sponsor the electronic exhibits repair them also?
I took my 5 year old daughter here this week to see the Mr. Potato Head exhibit and we were both quite disappointed. Having been members at the Madison Children's Museum for the past 4 years, we were expecting a similar-type museum and experience. Boy, were we wrong. Most exhibits needed pages of reading by an adult to figure out what was going on (by which time my daughter was wanting to move on), missing crucial exhibit pieces (so much so they could not be utilized), and everything was filthy (don't look up!). There was also someone from the museum over the PA most of the time we were there with blaring instructions no one could hear if they wanted to over the children. I could go on and on....The best part was being able to leave the museum to eat lunch close to the lake on the grass. Otherwise, I'll stay in Madison and go to our museum, or if I come to Milwaukee again, will not be revisiting.
Great museum for kids under the age of 10. I love how they can use their imagination and have hours of fun!
Living in wisconsin this is a great place to bring kids all winter. Variety of activities - some fun, some educational, some entertaining. Annual family pass is the way to go!
Great place to visit and the location is wonderful for a walk afterwards near the lake. Parking can be expensive.
