My kids loved this museum. My son who is 4 years old, loved to see all the dinosaurs. It is free and very close to Kenosha public museum and civil war museum.

It was cute. I wouldn't make it the only stop of the day but it was clean, cute and free. I had teenagers so they were not impressed but I enjoyed it and I'm sure younger kids would have too.
