There is lots to do at WonderLab! My grandson is four years old and had a great time...so much so he wanted to go back after lunch. The inventions kept him very entertained. Can't wait to go my next trip to Bloomington.

This hands on children's museum is two levels. There were lots to do, but didn't hold my grandsons attention for more than 1 1/2 hours.

we heard from friends about this kid's museum, it was great for our 2yr old and 5 yr old. There is lots to do and you can easily spend hours there. A great stop on a bad weather day.

Well worth it, if we would live closer by, we would get the membership! Favorite part is the hydrostatic exhibit (balls in water).

I have 16 and 11 yo boys. We will be driving through Bloomington on our way home tomorrow and are trying to decide if this would be something fun to do for a short amount of time to break up the trip. We have a membership to our hometown museum that allows free admission here, so it'll be free to stop. Just don't want to make the effort if everything is geared toward little kids.

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
