We've been here several times. Kids cost more than parent. I'm not sure why the parent is charged. They have things to do related to history, art, science and occupations.

For a break from learning about the Gettysburg Battle history, head to this small but wonderful children's museum. Perfect for kids up to age 7 or so. Definitely worth the $5 per child fee. This is a short 2-block walk to an old-fashioned Turkey Hill...More

This place is great for kids under the age of 7. It is all hands on and the kids are allowed to "run free" and explore as they choose. It is 2-story. The only draw back in my opinion is they charge for parents/adults.

We visited this museum with grandchildren ranging from 5 - 7 years of age. They loved it. Our grandchildren love to do pretend, so they thoroughly enjoyed the big "cabin" room. They also really enjoyed the "art" room, which had so very many options. There...More
