Nice children's museum with lots of interactive play for kids of all ages.

Great place to spend a few hours with the kids without breaking the bank. Definitely one of the highlights of Terre Haute for families.

I have nothing but wonderful words about this museum! We went on $5 Friday which also happened to be an adoption celebration day! They had enough to do where my 3 year old stayed busy and enjoyed herself all day! The staff was friendly, professional, and very helpful! They made sure we enjoyed ourselves and were finding our way around... More

We used to live in Terre Haute and this was new since we moved. Took a day trip to visit, our older child was 12 when we visited and most activities were not too interesting for her. For younger children this would be a fun place to spend an afternoon.

My daughter is 11 and she still enjoys going to this museum when we're in town. There's a wide variety of activities. I especially like the body exhibit. For a city the size of Terre Haute, it's a real gem. It's large enough that kids won't get bored quickly, but not so big that they're overwhelmed.

My grandson is three years old and can spend two hours enjoying the TH Children's museum. It is clean, the staff is friendly and helpful and we highly recommend it.

This museum has three levels of fun. There are all kinds of things to do with some things unique to Indiana. The little child area is also one of the best I've seen. My kids loved it here.

Once upon a time, there was a sad little children's museum in Terre Haute but now, the new Children's Museum competes with museums across the US. I love to take my granddaughters there. They can spend hours exploring, playing, and learning. Pizza on site makes lunch easy. It's open spaces make it never feel crowded. It's bright and colorful. The... More
