Can't say enough about this place. We take my grandson there several times a year and never get through the whole facility. He loves the giant train set and we have to tear him away from it. Then he gets into all the other exhibits and interactive features. It is always a welcome outing.

This museum is primarily designed to introduce children to development of science and culture through time. It is fun for both kids, parents and grand parents. Many displays can be handled and tried, such as different musical instruments, designs, etc. A good place to spend a few hours with out of town guests and their children.

First time visit was a pleasant surprise. I enjoyed playing around with all of the interactive activities right along with the kids. I really enjoyed watching the really young kids having fun in their space as well. Enjoyed learning about Fort Fun's history.

Spent 2.5 hours here with my 11 yr old boy and could have spent longer had their been more exhibits or a show playing in their theater. Wasn't sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. A vast array of hand's on exhibits with a large section devoted to musical instruments. Each exhibit offers a brief (though complete) history and... More

You really experience this museum by doing rather than just looking. Unusual exhibits/activities kept us engaged and having fun longer than we expected.
