“So much fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

We brought our daughter here and she loved it. The place isn't huge but there is a ton of stuff to do. The mini train outside was fun and so was the carousel. We will definitely go back.

“Just okay.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2012

I've been to many children's museums around the country, but sadly, this one is nothing special. A lot of the exhibits felt run down -- missing components, torn costumes, etc. Kind of a bummer. For example, there is an exhibit on growing food and there are corn cobs you can put up on the wall. But you can't. Where are the corn cobs? Okay, go play in the beehive and play dress up. Uh, except with torn costumes. There is some seriously good potential, but it needs more upkeep or fresh air or something.

Some children's museums are bright and airy. This has the feeling of being in a cramped old house. Which it is. That's cool and all, but still, something needs to livened up.

“Best place to take kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2012

Completely kid-centric place. Lots of interactive activities that kids love but also a lot to learn, everything from agriculture to biology to the science of soap bubbles. Very appropriate for toddlers up through early teenagers. It's become a must-hit for us on trips to Fargo. Kids run off energy and have a great time doing it. Would suggest spending at least an hour and a half, could definitely stay longer with older kids.

“Great for the kids!”

This place is so much fun for the kids. They learn, have a ton of fun, and get all pooped out! Great place to go with the whole family.

“Better for bigger kids, my 2&4 yr old still loved it!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2012

The museum had wonderful exhibits, so many interesting things to do and see and interact with. My 2 & 4 yr old ended up just running around from exhibit to exhibit. Most of the exhibits were over their heads but they still loved just burning the energy and being able to touch everything!
