Don't take the name so literally. We're about fun. Not your white walls, walk around, and be quiet museum. If you want to climb around, get active with your kids or are a big kid at heart, we're the place. If you get freaked out easily, you might...more

Great value for the money. Unfortunately they don’t have a spectator ticket. It’s the same price whether you participate in the activities or not. We had kids ages 5-12 with us. They all loved it. For the younger kids, under 5, I wouldn’t recommend, only...More

We came for the day during my 9 year old son’s spring break. We came prepared with flashlights for the caves. There was so much to see and do - every time I turned around there was another hole or slide to drop into. We...More

Myself and a group of friends all in our mid twenties went and enjoyed every minute of it. The museum is always changing and I have been going to since I was 6. I absolutely love it and would suggest it to everyone.

City Museum is delightful! There is even a slide between floors for children. Lots of unique things to see. The building interior is designed to be part of the displays. Even stair railings are colorful. Imaginative animal sculptures and even the sitting areas provide interesting...More

Sparks of creativity and amazement from visit. I’ve traveled from out of state 5 times. ALWAYS WORTH IT! Warning- not for helicopter parents.

This place is great for ALL ages! You can spend hours here and still not explore every part. Our kids love coming here!

Full of caves, slides, tunnels and much more. It’s a magical place where you get lots of excercise indoors. I was there twice in a month and look forward to going back soon.

My friends an I stopped by in the daytime but it was crowded with children. We went back at night and there were no children in sight and it was amazing!! We had a blast there! Planning on going back next time we visit.

Please don't. As much as you love your dog, other people don't. Would you want someone who loves their small pet snake to bring it in? Rat? Chicken? Where do you draw the line? Service animals - yes. Pets, stay home.
