This museum is great for smaller children. There are a few things that will also appeal to children up to 6th grade. Clean and well kept. Several monitors on site to help with the kids.

There is always something new and fun to do. The museum changes out exhibits and attractions frequently and keeps it interesting.

Terre Haute Children's Museum could be a ton of fun for young children. On 2-2-18, shortly after the museum opened, I took my 3 and 6 year olds there for the first time. My children had a great time until we reached the 2nd floor....More

The museum has interesting and fun activities that every member in my family was able to enjoy! My favorite thing to do was to “milk” the cow!

There are many exciting exhibits for the children to participate and interact. However the day we visited about 40% of the exhibits were in disrepair. As a patron family member it was disappointing to see so many of the exhibits not working!
