We were told that this was a place to go when we visited Fargo. "The kids will love it" people said.....Immediately upon entering we wanted to leave. It was messy, dingy, and a little frightening. We didn't really want to touch anything because it was...More

There is a great variety of fun kids' activities here. This is a highly recommended outing, especially for preschool and elementary-aged kids. Fun and educational with lots of activities to choose from.
