The first time we went there, we were a little confused. We tried to keep up with them. Later we realized that this place is meant for you to just let them run. Other than making sure they picked up their own messes as they went, we only had to keep them in view and enjoy. This place looks small... More

There's lots for the kids to do. However, several stations need supplies replaced or upgraded. One area of concern was that my grandson was climbing inside the cuckoo clock display, the one with building blocks that goes up all three stories. I was waiting for him, and watching and the next thing I knew, he was coming down the main... More

A world built for children to explore and conquer. There is so much to do on 3 floors and the extra activities are the best.

LCM is an amazing experience for children and adults, they offer tons to do and what I actually love most is so many local traditions right inside, as sponsors in our community have little sections of play and make believe incorporated into the theme of the museum. They offer private parties and events, Really great.... the only reason I gave... More

Visiting my mom and dad we decided to take the kids out. Wow! It was so much fun. We spent 2 hours or so and never did the same things for more than 15 minutes. The highlight for the kids was the big cuckoo clock with the foam blocks. We were crawling around in there for 45 min or more.... More
