As long time listeners and financial supporters, we enjoyed our time at Focus. We didn't know about Jim's upbringing so we were glad we saw the video on his life and on Focus. The downstairs is a lot of fun for kids!

I listened to focus on the family a lot when my kids were growing up. They have a whole section for kids based on the "Whit's End" and "Adventures in Odyssey" series. If your kids are into that, this section is a lot of fun....More

Out of the elements and a fun trip for the kids, we really enjoyed this. The kids loved making the radio show!

Great one day trip... especially if you have small children. Free admission. Upstairs halls cover Focus of the Family projects (for adults), Downstairs is a 'mock' town of Odessey, including Wooten's slide, Soda Pop Bar, and much, much more for the little ones.

This is a great place to visit when you want a morning or afternoon out. Perfect for all ages and best off all FREE. The staff was courteous and helpful and the bookstore featured quite an assortment of books as well as decor and gifts.

This was recommended to us by several friends, but I thought it would be too baby for our 11 year old. Turned out to be the perfect stop on our vacation. They have a huge indoor slide and a whole floor/building level full of fun...More
