Decided to do this when it poured while we were on vacation in WI. Our Grandson loved it! He's 2 1/2 and they had lots of fun activities for him to do. Didn't look like much from the outside but... more »
Great place to spend a (rainy) day. I was surprised to find such a great children’s museum in a small town like Eagle River. We took our kids there and easily spent 3 hours there. We were on vacation in the area, and the weather wasn’t good, so it was a nice way to keep the kids occupied. So much to do.
We visited the Northwoods Children’s Museum after an enthusiastic recommendation from one of my co-workers. He said he and his grandson spent all day, so we were looking forward to a rainy day at the museum. We arrived around 2:30 and stayed till 4:30, and that seemed to be enough time for our 3.5 year old son to explore thoroughly. I’m sure he would have liked to stay longer, but we left to find food before the dinner rush! One comment/critique would be that there’s very limited seating for grown-ups. Our kiddo gets pretty involved with his creative play and this pregnant momma really wanted a spot to sit for a bit to watch him while he played with the trains and race cars. I understand wanting to encourage parents to chase their kids around the museum, but there are play spaces where a comfortable adult-sized seat would have been appreciated. We will be back on future rainy days and recommend others to visit as well!
