Great place to take your children and most adults will enjoy it too

We have taken our grand kids more than once. It is very interesting, entertaining and educational. Adults will enjoy it too as it brings out the kid in you.

I try to bring my kids whenever we are visiting family in eastern SD. Can spend half a day here. Great place for a bad weather day but even better when it's nice outside as they have great area outdoors for kids to explore. Especially nice for toddler/young school age. 4 stars due to the price. It's a little expensive... More

This is the absolute best place for young kids. We have visited with our grandson who lives in South Dakota. We loved it so much we had to bring our granddaughters. Five hours there and we still had to bribe them to leave. There is so much to do and see. It's educational, interactive and has something for everyone. You... More

The Children's Museum offers something unique for your children. Many hands on learning experiences. It was a rainy day at the local camp ground, we took our 5, 11, 13 year old boys to visit. Although it was busy, there was plenty to do and after 2 hours the kids had smiles on their faces yet!

This is a wonderful place for families with small children. There is so much "fun stuff" for the little ones to do. Simply a wonderful place.

So much to see touch and do. A very hands on place. Kids are encouraged to play with whatever they like. The museum is kept clean and user friendly. A great value for the money. The food in the food court is fun and delicious

I took my 7 year old grandson. It was cold and windy outside so we were looking for some indoor fun and a way to wear off some energy after a long car ride. We spent most of the day there and had a blast. There was plenty to do and see. His favorite was the water room. He still... More
