At first I had no intention of wanting to go to here because it was to "childish", but once I saw the amazing actives I thought it was amazing. I loved the fake pizza place and the farm, it really did have you learn in a fun way. I FULLY recommend this.

While we were in town for a baby shower, we took our 3 year old and 9 month old here to kill a few hours. Both of them loved it. There is a little town set up where the kids can play pretend and there is a costume for every occupation. There are indoor and outdoor water tables, a farm... More

My kids loved the pretend play. There are so many things to do. I especially loved the phone lines to call different areas. I would call different shops and the kids would answer and I would order a pizza from the pizza shop and ask for mail at the post office. It was fun.

When our kids were younger, they LOVED Family Museum. I stopped in there this week to meet with director on business. I can't believe how many new things they've added. It's an incredible place for kids to learn and explore. The Quad Cities is fortunate to have it!

We have a family membership for the grandchildren and go at least twice a month. They are 3 years old, 5 years, and 6 years. The space has activities for all ages, however, most are geared to younger than 5 years old. The Think Shop is fun for older children but there are only 9 work areas so it gets... More

Took my three children (10,2,1) and my 8 year old nephew and everyone had a good time! My 10 year old was ready to go after 2 hours but I think he was hesitant to enjoy due to his age The other three kids would have stayed all day had I let them! The two youngest were mesmerized with the... More

The last time I was here there was major construction going on. One of my and my little guy's favorite areas (the music room) was no longer available--which was a bit of a disappointment. The ThinkShop is always a fun time. There are lots of areas for children to learn in, but hopefully the museum takes time to get all... More

Discover, play and learn together as a family. There are plenty of activities for anyone age 1 to 101! We spent several hours playing in the pretend grocery store, on the farm and outside. There are classes my 6 yo can take too! Well worth the money and time spent!

I've visited the Family Museum in Bettendorf many times with my two children. They absolutely love the place. It is always clean and it is big enough to handle the busiest days. The exhibits are interactive and it helps children (and adults) learn about the local area.
