  • This was an unexpected surprise! It's a great place for kids to burn off some creative steam! The Family Museum is an interactive play-house (as my son - 5yrs - called it). They have a kids play...

  • When we have the grandkids we always love going to the family museum we spend hours there. There is so much to do for the price, its one of the best kid friendly museums in our area!

  • This museum has been the same for years and years. I do wish they could add more and or change up more. (Other than the traveling exhibits) This is geared towards younger kids. My older kids get bored quickly UNTIL we go upstairs to the art room. The art room is amazing and my older kids will spend hours creating there. They love the wood working portion and being able to build and decorate their own vision. The staff in this area is fantastic with helping and giving creative insights. My son built a wooden tiger and the guy took a picture of it to put in the ideas book. I'm not sure if this book is even real but he made my son's entire month with that! Overall it's a nice place that kids can spend a good few hours playing and or creating.
  • A little pricey, especially for parents to just go in and chase their kids around. The outside play area is a little small but nice in the summer when the water tables are on. Wish the exhibits changed more often they seem to be the same everytime we go. Also so many items are really outdated, the toys and small house area could just use a little bit of a freshen up. But overall we enjoy our time there.
