I took my 19-month old grandson here last week. I wondered if he might be too young for the activities but he loved it. There was plenty for him to do as well as activities that are more appropriate for older children. He didn't want...More

From the outside it doesn't look like much, but it was so much fun! So much to do for the little ones (we had a 3yo, 5yo, and 9yo with us), we stayed for hours and they were sad to leave. A big favorite was...More

We have taken our grandchildren here many times and always have to talk them into leaving. They cannot get enough of all the activities. Our current five year old especially enjoys sorting and delivering mail. You cannot go wrong bringing your children or grandchildren here.

We visited primarily for the Doc McStuffins exhibit but our daughter made quick work of that and spent most of her time in the museum's other spaces. This children's museum is a little on the smaller side but they pack A LOT in. In addition...More

We drove in from Wisconsin specifically to see the Doc McStuffins exhibit, but my 3 year old loved everything about the museum. We enjoyed the Doc exhibit, but she particularly enjoyed their permanent exhibits, especially the pizzeria and the grocery store. Hours of hands-on play...More

Yes. There is a new Hotel next to the I-74 bridge on Middle Rd, I think it's a Hilton, looks nice.
