The many Hands-On exhibits are a delight for young children and parents will enjoy them also. The outdoor Gardens are a nice summer treat. Birthday parties there are fun and educational.

Tremendous variety of activities - some extremely unique. For example, had an interactive "stock market" for investing to see the risks and rewards. Four monitors for "trading" were available wherein one player could impact another with buying and selling.

We are regular visitors to the one in naperville Illinois and have taken the kids to the one in Appleton. The Fond du Lac museum is on the right path, just needs to step up their game.
