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!

I totally like going to the museum with my Bryson and Wyatt. I enjoy all the special events and activities that this Museum makes available to our children. Just try it out and see how your little ones enjoy it.

As the title says, for a town this size, you'd be hard pressed to find a better children's museum. Our kids love it there and we try to go at least once a year.

It's a lovely way to spend family time together. Adults get to feel like a kid again as they play, experiment and learn right along side of their children and grandchildren.
