The Muncie Children's Museum is great fun! We spend many late mornings/early afternoons there. There are plenty of things for the kids to play with--they love it!

My kids (10 & 8) love going here. There's a lot of fun, neat, and informative things for them to do. It's a great way to spend a rainy day!

It’s been a while since we’ve been there and I hear they are updating what they have. But the stuff they had there 20 years ago is basically what they have now. It’s due for a major overhaul

Dated? Yes. Fun? Yes. My 5 year old loved all three hours. Go with an open mind. This place can’t compete with Indy or other large cities with children’s science museums.

This is a very nice Children's Museum. If you need a place to take your kids for the day they have a lot of hands on things for the kids to do and it is very clean.

Very disappointed. The museum needs some cleaning, and updating. The water feature doesn't even work. The train doesn't run. Boring museum! !!
