What a great place! Kids have a wide range of activities they can engage in and lots of things to explore. They can also really play here, so it's not just a "run through and see things" kind of place. It's a bit on the...More

Good for all ages! Me and a friend took our kids here two 11 year olds and one 4 year old. My son one of the 11 year olds loved the lab and the auto mechanic.

Kids (best for under 12) love this place. Lots to do; several floors of interactive exhibits. Well managed and gets better all the time. A real Gem in Harrisonburg.

We were there on a school day and had just missed a school field trip (thankfully), so we pretty much had the place to ourselves! The grandkids loved the sound effects in the theater area and spent time building in the construction zone.

This children's museum is very similar to the one on Broad Street in Richmond, only smaller with no outdoor space. Four grandparents had three granddaughters, ages 7, 8, and 8. The girls' favorite attraction was the theater room with the makeup station. They spent a...More

We took our two eight-year old children here and they may have been a little too old for this museum, but they still had fun. They loved the car mechanic exhibit along with the chicken coop slide. All of the kids were so excited in...More
