Many visits to this popular attraction and still fun. Great for grandparents and youngsters alike. I always learn something new, and always have fun. Interactive displays allow personal growth and encourage imagination. A must when visiting Bloomington!

Took our grandson and he had a blast. Didn't want to leave. Lots of educational and playful stations for kids to learn and play. A "Must Go" if you are in the area.

It’s just the right size for young kids. Giving them several options for activities. The water feature is especially fun for them.

This is a wonderful, affordable place where kids can have fun for hours—and learn about science, nature and more. And adults will enjoy it too. Child-oriented special activities and exhibits are added bonus. In spring and summer, the outdoor garden is relaxing.

Enough interesting things to do to fill a day, but not so big as to get lost. Great fun for kids of many ages and many interests. If your child doesn't do well with a lot of other noise, call ahead to make sure there...More

Must-to-go place with your kids! My kids love the bubble playground and the reptiles exhibit on the second floor. They also offer "after dark party" for adult over 21. Wonderful place for killing time with your kids and friends!

Super cute place, and my kids (3 and 1.5 years) loved it! It's a little small, but you can still spend a good 1-2 hours here. Would go back!

My kids love going to WonderLab, and the price is nice, especially with my corporate discount. It does seem like the cleanliness of the place is lacking, and that the exhibits don't change much, but if you don't go all the time that probably won't...More

Spend the afternoon with my six year old at Wonderlab for some 1:1 time. Good hands-on science activities. Lego water table and bubble room are favorites!

From my perspective most displays and activities are for children a few years older. Some may be suitable. Perhaps give Wonderlab a call.

The eleven year old is certainly not to old for the wonder lab. I believe it is really target for his age and knowledge. The 16 yo can certainly find things that are of interest to him if he is into science. As an old man... More
