This was a fun place to visit with my niece, but at age 7, she was almost too old for some of the activities. She still enjoyed them, but breezed through fairly quickly. Still a... read more

Took our grandchildren 7 and 10. Had to pay per child and adult. There was very little for them to do or see. But the worst part was the lack of adult supervision. There were several older children running all over the place and totally out of control. It was difficult for other children to enjoy anything available because these... More

My boys have always enjoyed visiting the children's museum. It's in an old historic building and there is a lot of learning available. Kids aren't ever ready to leave!!

This museum is set up like a make believe town inside a building. There is a tiny post office, court house, grocery store, fire truck, ambulance and police car all set up for toddlers to climb on and explore. Additional displays include a stage with costumes, news castor chairs and desk as well as a mini school house. Most of... More

This was a fun place to visit with my niece, but at age 7, she was almost too old for some of the activities. She still enjoyed them, but breezed through fairly quickly. Still a good value but older kids will not have as much to keep them busy. Also, some of the activities are good for multiple kids to... More

Basically a building with each room featuring similar household toys grouped together with a few larger-scale backdrops. My 4 year-old daughter didn't learn anything and definitely was not fascinated. Would only recommend for families with young toddlers - those who recently learned to walk and are entertained with their new-found freedom.

My kids loved it 9yrs old-23 mths old! We stayed for 3 hrs. Lots of dressup and imagination play. It was setup like a city. The staff was super friendly too!

A tiny town for our tiny humans - little ones love this place and moms and dads grin from ear to ear as they explore and giggle with delight.

This is a wonderful place for children. Located downtown, not far from the public library and center of downtown, this is a hidden jewel for children and adults to enjoy. Children will definitely be fascinated and most of all have plenty of fun. This is a child's place and they will enjoy meeting others and becoming fascinated at Fascinate-U Children's... More

I have taken my grandchildren to this museum. It is a very informative interaction place. My grandchildren loved it. I had to drag them away. They have different little places for real life experiences like a miniature bank, post office, courtroom, grocery store, class room, dress up room, 911 operator station, ambulance, firehouse, news station, army station, and more.
