We had fun taking our 17-month old here while we were on vacation. He met new friends, found fun toys and ran out some excess energy. They have a climbing wall, microscope, boat races, and craft room.

Excellent option for your kid (1-12 years) after tours and museums. Relax, clean, safe, indoor playground. Little expensive because charge not just the kids even their parents but worth it.More

If you live in Fairbanks this is a decent facility to visit if you have kids aged about infant-6 years old, especially in the winter time when you need to keep the kids busy. If you're just passing through- it's not especially worth it if...More

When you need a place to go when the weather is bad.....which is often, this is a great place for kids to go! Our pre-schoolers kept themselves busy for 2 hours and were quite happy!

Had an 11yr old and an 8yr old...both enjoyed themselves. Lots of very young ones there too. Plenty to do for kids of all ages.

The children's museum was OK, but we are spoiled by the amazing museums in California (much larger) so it's hard for me to be impressed by this. In my opinion (but it's all relative), the museum was small and a bit run down even though...More

My grandchildren love this place, but I am not as fond of it. It is high priced for the amount of time we spend there before the kids are ready to leave. There is no comfortable seating for adults. Having some would really help, as...More
