  • They have awesome exhibits! The events they host are always fun and educational. The staff is super friendly.
  • Great place for kids. Hands on, educational, and FUN! Oh and it's FREE!!!
  • Really fun museum, took us about an hour to go through it with our children. They really liked that many of the exhibits were interactive. We enjoyed that it was something we could do that was free. They have a really excellent collection and the displays are interesting for the whole family, we will visit again!
  • We parked on Clay Ave and we walked to the Lakeshore Museum Center, Fire Barn Museum and Scolnik House of the Depression Era. They are ok and they are all free so it's worth stopping by. We did the Hackley & Hume houses before which are only 2 blocks away and i highly recommend visiting.
  • Brought the kids 2, 4, & 6. We spent most of our time in the science room looking at the tornado, weights, magnets, mirrors, and instruments. We spent about an hour their, mostly in the hands on areas. They also liked to learn about the area's logging history.
