Their membership is the best if you live out here. Buy the family membership and get reciprocity in Madison, Milwaukee, Chicago. It is amazing!!!

Great hands on museum, plenty to do for several hours. Kids and 1-13 would have a lot to do here for hours on end.

What a great place. Brought the 2 year old and he had so much fun. Not only is it fun it is educational. 2 adults and the kid we paid $27. Not only is there indoor activities there's a huge wooden activity area outside with tables and benches to look at the river view. Bring your lunch and enjoy it outside or inside. What a fun time.
The Rockford children's discovery museum is so much better than the Madison WI one. Everything we thought it would be and more! The hands on fun and the amount of fun learning and activities are awesome! From science to farming and so much in between it's a great place for kids and adults. We'll definitely make the trip here regularly
