First of all, let me say the kids had a good time, but really there isn't much here. A little run down and disappointed in the Pippy Longstocking playhouse. My girls were excited to see it and even they commented on how underwhelming it was. This attraction was about the best Fargo had for kids and it wasn't terribly expensive. So if you are looking for something, kids will find it fun.

This is a great place for families or just anyone who enjoys lovely environs and fun games and playgrounds! There's even a train for the little ones and great displays for all.

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.

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.
