      I took my nephew and nieces, ages 1l years old, 5 years old, and 10 months old, to the Kohl Children’s Museum. They all had a blast!

      The kid who had the most fun was the five-year-old.

      I would say that the museum is especially geared towards this age group! The museum is all about learning while playing, and Little Bear loved that! She found each and every area very engaging, whether it was the people-sized carwash, the


      kid-sized grocery store with the “real” groceries and shopping carts, the water room, the music room, or the temporary Clifford The Big Red Dog display.

      Her favorite room was the Clifford display, and she spent hours in there playing restaurant!

      My 11-year-old nephew was probably a little old for the place, and if he had been there alone with me he probably would have been a little bored… but tagging along with the little kids was fun for him, and the exhibits and toys were still interesting enough to engage him as long as he had an excuse (his sisters) for being there, Probably the kid who had the hardest time enjoying the museum was the ten-month-old!

      baby loved to stick in her mouth! The best room for her was also the Clifford Exhibit, which contained safe climbing areas for her to play in.

      For being so crowded, the museum was kept in pretty good shape, with museum guides going around and “resetting” the exhibits every few minutes so the next kids would have a fresh new exhibit to play in.

      However, it was EXTREMELY crowded in the morning, and it was sort of hard

      for the kids to have room to play anywhere.

      I would not recommend going in the morning.

      After about 11:30, many people go home, and the museum gets much quieter and more accessible.

      Also, the exhibit guides weren’t particularly friendly, and none made any effort to talk to the kids at all.

      Bottom line… This was a great place to spend a day.

      If you have children between the ages of 2 and 7, it will be like Heaven to them!
