Played for hours with my little cousins at the museum. Their excitement was contagious and it was fun to go from one activity and exhibit to another.

I've known the Children's Museum of La Crosse since it first opened. From the beginning, it's been a great place for children and families in our community, and a destination attracting visitors to the area. I'm impressed how it continues to provide a fresh variety of exhibits, activities, and programs that engage children across a wide range of ages. The staff is friendly and kind, and works hard to make sure everyone has a wonderful time.

The Childrens Museum of La Crosse is a top notch organization that is driven to provide children a safe and exciting environment to learn, play and just be a kid. They continually look to attract community members by bringing in traveling exhibits which keep their offerings fresh along side the staples (Fire Truck, Kwik Trip and the River).

The Children's Museum of La Crosse was an old furniture store when I first became acquainted with it! As a member of the original board of directors, I have witnessed it grow and change to keep up with current topics. As a result, it has become a very special place where children can play to learn and learn to play!

The Children's Museum of La Crosse is an amazing destination for any family. My 18 month old grandson absolutely loves the place. Although he lives in Green Bay and time is precious when he's in La Crosse with us , a visit to the museum is planned nearly every time. La Crosse is very fortunate to have such an outstanding family attraction.

We had the pleasure of working with the Children’s Museum of La Crosse on their new logo and brand identity. Not only are they a great asset to our community, they are a great group of people to work and collaborate with. They have a clear passion for what they do and that shines through their brand, facility and staff.

The museum is a place that kids can go to have fun with their families, learn and grow. They make sure that reduced and free memberships are available. Simply amazing.

The Childrens Museum is an amazing place for grown-ups and kids alike. Nothing brings more smiles to our day than to wake up and announce it's a Children's Museum Day. I can feel great about the learning and fun that will take place and always cherish the opportunity to slow down our busy lives and schedules and have fun together as a family. There is a great variety of activities for all our kiddos and every visit is an enriching experience. Of course this is due to the wonderful staff and behind the scenes work done by an amazing group of people dedicated to providing the best to our community.
