Build. Dance. Climb. Sing. Paint. Play. Learn. Discover. Imagine!

Fun and lasting memories await your family. Cruise down to KidStreet! Tune up the car before heading to the gym, put together some sandwiches and brew espresso and steam up a latte at the local cafe, make music, or produce your own play or newscast live at the studio. Open the door to adventure on the 1.5 acre Prairie! Climb hills and logs, weave through a willow tunnel, wade in a stream, build a dam, wander the prairie grass maze, and dig for dinosaur bones. Be careful not to wake up Mama and her baby boy Max, the only full size, permanent, animatronic T. rex in the United States.

  • This place is awesome! Even the cafe food was surprisingly good. Do not pass this up if you have a kid with you. He or she will LOVE it and so will you.

  • Lots of interactive things to do both indoors and out. Grandkids especially liked the grocery store and water works.

  • Absolutely great except for the fact too many field trips scheduled at same time from different schools...so many parents upset that there children couldn't get to things with too many kids there of all ages... Some very rude would not give smaller children a chance to figure out different activities, grabbing things out of there hands. Pushing. Shoving. Plan next visit when there is hardly anyone there. Beautiful place shame some kids don't appreciate it and act like they never get out of the house
  • The level of cleanliness was impressive, especially for a place that primarily caters to children. The staff were polite and engaging. The exhibits were varied enough that they kept our 1, 3, and 12 year olds happy for about 3 hours! We’ll definitely be back and plan to get a membership on our next trip.
