At the advice of my son and his family, my wife and I stopped by to visit this family attraction. We're glad we did! Located near the UW and Accuity campuses on the southwest side, this wonderfully creative showplace for children's stories is a landscape...More

Went to Bookworm on Monday morning in September. School buses were there already but the place is large and there was plenty of room. Loved the hands on exhibits and was totally amazed at the large varieties and beautiful and fascinating sculptures. More to see...More

What a hidden gem this place is, from the colorful paths leading the way around the place, to having the children learn by the little vignettes of places that they can interact with their favorite childhood stories. The 3 bears along with the 3 pigs...More

This is a cute place. Fun art, nice garden, books hidden in pillars and places to take a break. This is a place for people with kids. Some fun activities like washing a stone dog or seeing big fish in the pond. Lots of creativity...More

It was a cute place but probably meant more for families than older couples, unless you have a good book and want a cute place to read. It was kept up and clean. Kids seemed like they had a blast.

This is a wonderful place to take the children for a couple of hours. Beautiful storybook scenery and flowers and shrubs were gorgeous. We went on a very warm day, but there are large, shady areas to take a rest, and activities for the children....More

Excellent way to spend an hour! Beautiful, clever and perfect for all ages! While our younger kids (almost 2 and 9) enjoyed every inch, even our 12 year old had fun! A must see if you're in the area.

wonderful place to visit with or without children. Plenty to do and see for everyone. Gardens are beautiful. Books outside of every themed section if you like to read. So fun!

I'm sorry, I've never seen any. There's steps going into the main entrance; you'd have to go around the bus to enter. The ground isn't the smoothest in many areas. I've gone with a stroller, but you'd probably have to stay... More
