It is a very well organize hands on children's museum. The location is not as big as other children's museums which is an advantage for parents as the kids have the chance to explore everything in about 2 hours (3 hrs max). Is a 2-story...More

Endless fun through educational exhibits - An excellent way to spend the entire day. We couldn't get my son away from the water exhibit. He just kept going back! Wonderfully creative and exciting space! My kids never wanted to leave!

Many visits to this popular attraction and still fun. Great for grandparents and youngsters alike. I always learn something new, and always have fun. Interactive displays allow personal growth and encourage imagination. A must when visiting Bloomington!

Took our grandson and he had a blast. Didn't want to leave. Lots of educational and playful stations for kids to learn and play. A "Must Go" if you are in the area.

From my perspective most displays and activities are for children a few years older. Some may be suitable. Perhaps give Wonderlab a call.

The eleven year old is certainly not to old for the wonder lab. I believe it is really target for his age and knowledge. The 16 yo can certainly find things that are of interest to him if he is into science. As an old man... More
