We found ourselves visiting Great Falls with our 3.5-year-old who badly needed to get out of the car and do something fun. Unfortunately, the spring weather wasn't cooperating, so we needed something indoors. I came in to the Children's Museum of Montana not expecting too much, but was so completely, pleasantly surprised. There were so many things to do that... More

Our 2-year-old grandson did lots of exploring in the multiple museum stations, but, ultimately, the 'train tracks' were his favorite. Plenty of options for toddlers - elementary children. Staff was friendly. Great value.

We have an annual membership and I take my daughter there often. My daughter loves going there! I wish their hours were more school kid friendly and we'd definitely go even more. I've been to 3 other CMOMs (Bozeman, Helena and Missoula) and in my opinion, ours is the best.

Something for the little kids that like hands on! Our little ones really like going there. I just don't like the fee for the parents to enter with them, makes it pretty pricy for some, but well worth it.

We had a great time! There are two floors of fun. We enjoyed the dress up area and puppet show. I loved the fact they send home 2 books per kid. They have an entire area just for legos!

We visit our grandchildren in Montana multiple times each year and almost always bring them to the Children's Museum. While it doesn't compare with the children's museums in St.Paul or Phoenix it's a great little museum for a smaller community and our grandchildren love it. In fact the size makes it much less intimidating unless you run into a school... More

We took the kids to the museum to see what it was all about, along with the idea of letting them burn some energy. The parking is free easily accessed from the street be aware Great falls is full of one way streets in the city. Three staff members were very friendly and very informative. The museum is divided into... More
