“Museum best suited for kids 5 & under.”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

I went with my kids ranging from 6 - 12 years old. I think we could have done it easily in an 45 minutes but the fire alarm went off and we had to go stand outside. That did not bother me at all and was pleased at how the staff handled the situation. Apparently it happens often.
There is not much to do here. The painting was the best part but the staff seemed very uninterested in my kids and helping them. The staff stood there and talked instead of working with all of the small children in their area.
I think you can get through this is 45 min max. for kids older than 6.

Sorry that you didn't have a more positive experience at the museum.

With over 90,000 visitors in our first year yours is the first negative comment I have had regarding staff. Our visitors average 2 to 3 hours in the museum which is very high to museum standards and the average age is 2 to 10.

Also we train weekly on Fire Alarms so staff are well versed on them, we don't have real ones frequently but I am glad we handled it well on your visit.

Again sorry your visit wasn't better.

“Outstanding new facility, friendly staff”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

Great new facility in the heart of a renovated Green Bay downtown. Friendly staff, lots of activities, and a pleasant atmosphere. Hands on for all ages of children. Welcoming environment is perfect all year round but especially handy location to beat the winter blues and get out for something fun and educational for the family.

“Our kids love this place!”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

Learning while playing is the accomplished goal of this place. Climbing up the Lighthouse, playing "chef" in The Diner and making something for Grandma in the Imagination Station are our favorites! Have visited on numerous occasions - our kids just can't get enough of this place! Plenty of photo opps so bring a camera. Friendly/Helpful staff.

“A great addition to Downtown Green Bay!”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

If you are looking for a place to take your children for a day, visit the newly created Children's Museum. They can do art projects, build, explore, climb, play with water, imagine, and learn! It is very clean and child friendly!

“Very Impressive”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Our 2 yr old grandson had a wonderful time. There were so many things to do, most captured his interest. I loved the "little rooms", it helped us keep up to him. We stayed 2 hrs and if we hadn't gotten tired, he would have stayed longer. Well worth the admission.
