Kids (best for under 12) love this place. Lots to do; several floors of interactive exhibits. Well managed and gets better all the time. A real Gem in Harrisonburg.

I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the Explore More museum, and felt it was a good value since the admission price is only $6.50. While it isn't as big as children's museums in larger cities, my children still played happily for over two...More

Took a weekend trip to Harrisonburg to have some water park fun. We spent Friday afternoon here. Our children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The children's museum is located in town which has an old fashioned feel. There was plenty of parking located near the museum and...More

We were there on a school day and had just missed a school field trip (thankfully), so we pretty much had the place to ourselves! The grandkids loved the sound effects in the theater area and spent time building in the construction zone.

We took our two eight-year old children here and they may have been a little too old for this museum, but they still had fun. They loved the car mechanic exhibit along with the chicken coop slide. All of the kids were so excited in...More

This is a great place to take young kids (10 and under) especially on a rainy day. Many activities to keep their interest. It's expensive so if you're local a yearly pass is the way to go.

Great place to take your kid if it's cold or rainy outside. Plenty of different activities so they never get bored. You will be worn out before your kid is. Only down side is that it can get crowded. Looking forward to the top two...More

Took my two kids - 12 & 10 - here as we were exploring Harrisonburg. What a great find! The kids loved exploring and trying out all the different rooms. Very hands on and interactive for them. I think we ended up spending almost two...More
