Minnesota Children's Museum reviews
Amazing! Multiple floors with a variety of exhibits for kids of all ages. Our two year old enjoyed the toddler area as well as the rest of the museum. Everything is well-planned and thought out. I especially love the “calming rooms” where I was able to nurse my baby in a quiet spot while my husband chased our two year old. We are visiting from out of town but will definitely come back on our future trips!
We have taken our kids to this museum many times and they love it. Since their ages have ranged from 2 through 9 on these visits, I know the museum is fun for those ages. Since the parents and grandparents have had fun, too, I'm not sure it isn't great for all ages! Ages 6 and up especially love the laser room and the craft room. Ages under 6 love the fire engine, mail delivery activity, and anything with water! What's even better, the kids often fall asleep after their visit, so adults get a little respite!
