We love the Wonderlab. The kids always have so much fun. It is a little expensive for a day pass. We bought a membership and go at least once a month. Trust me a membership is worth it if you are going to go more than once a year.

I took my two children and three of their friends to this gem of a place for Spring Break. Over the years, I had heard a lot of great reviews about the WonderLab. I was a little shocked to see how small the space is, but simultaneously delighted to see how much information and experience they pack into it. When... More

I have often done volunteer work for them, and it is always really nice. They have a room for bubbles, a pretty good climbing apparatus (socks are a requirement), and various themed exhibits throughout the year. Best of all, adults can have fun, too.

I recently visited with my 5 year old granddaughter. She had a great time and did not slow down for over 2 hours. Lots of things to do like a 2+ story climbing "tree"; some building with blocks of wood; and making tall stacks of plastic cups. Also some science relating things to do relating to magnetism and water. We... More

Love this place. Both kids enjoyed their time here. Perfect for not having to drive up to Indy which is a little to big to see everything. Michelle H helped us out a whole bunch, and made us feel welcomed.

I love the WonderLab. It's relatively small, but an entertaining place to spend a couple of hours, especially on bad weather days. The last time I took my son, he was about 13 and didn't really want to go but we were in Bloomington for a football game and the weather was horrible so he was agreed. He was surprised... More

Our 18 month-old grandson loved WonderLab, especially the exciting water table. Even at his young age, he was able to make wondrous things happen, all by himself! This little boy's attention was focused for hours and mom, dad, and grandparents had a terrific time, too.

It is small, but the price is high. This makes this a non busy place that is very clean and easy to get in. There are larger places to go, but not an nice with everything working. I don't mind paying the extra for a little extra.
