We have been going off and on for years with our kids, so it is worth a visit. My kids have fun every time, and its a real asset to the small city of LaCrosse. However, every time I have gone, its been about a two hour experience. Maybe less. Prices for admission were recently raised to $6 a person, and with our large family, that's just too expensive if our toddler flames out after an hour. I've been to many kid-oriented museums over the years and most are bigger and better (pricier too, but worth it since you stay there all day). So while I'm sure it is a good way to spend a couple of hours with your kids, I feel the museum ought to be upgraded, or the price of admission lowered.

My son Loves the children's museum in La Crosse. He can spend 2 or more hours there every week if we could find the time to go. In fact he could probably go more than once a week. When we first were deciding whether or not to buy a membership I wasn't sure there was enough to hold his attention time and time again, but I was wrong. We recently went to another museum on our Passport level membership and it included 5 museums in one. I must say it made me see our children's museum in a whole different light. It was located in a city bigger than La Crosse and it paled in comparison. Not that there weren't things that were impressive in some of the museums but the children's museum was nothing compared to what we have here at the museum in La Crosse. I just wanted to say thanks to the Children's Museum in La Crosse because I now see how lucky we are to have such a great place to spend an afternoon. Thanks for all the exhibits and the staff who are so friendly and work so hard to keep the place clean and running. Thank you.

We love the Children's Museum of La Crosse! It is always clean and safe, there are a wide variety of activities to keep infants, toddlers, and elementary school aged children engaged and involved. The activities are educational and fun and my children request trips to the museum over and over. We get the annual pass so we can go as often as we want, especially in the winter months when we need to burn some energy and there is too much snow to be outside!

The Great!

My experiences at the Children's Museum of La Crosse have made it into our family memory books/photo albums...literally! It is a place that provides more than just learning and fun for the kids. It provides an opportunity for family and friends to really connect and grow together. I cherish these memories and look forward to many more!

What a wonderful afternoon for my niece and nephew from Phoenix it is on their list every time they come to La Crosse. Parents and aunts and uncles can relax and just let kids be kids for the afternoon. A wonderful addition to the La Crosse area.

I have a 3 year old son that loves the museum. If it were up to him we would be there every weekend. The museum not only provides my son with a great place to learn, but also a safe, and clean environment thanks to the museum staff.

I have two children who have grown up with the museum, and we've been members for years. No matter how often we visit, my children are always excited for the next time. The interactive exhibits are engaging and educational, and the museum is constantly bringing in new attractions. It's a La Crosse star!

I interned at the museum during my sophmore semester at UW-La Crosse. It was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life and one that probably shaped me the most as a professional. Not only was the staff's passion for what they do contagious, but the community embraces this organization with open, willing arms. I was surprised by how supportive other businesses were and the outpour of support we also received from visitors and friends of the museum. The city would not be the same without this nonprofit; it has helped shape La Crosse as a giving and nurturing place that cares about kids. And I would not be the same without it either.

The Great!

I served 2 terms as a Board member, and I also visit frequently with my grandkids. The exhibits are always changing, they keep the place clean, and the volunteers and staff are extremely friendly and helpful. My grandkids love it, and I notice that adults really enjoy themselves too!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Listening to my grandchildren tell their parents about their trips to the museum with me, and being pleasantly surprised at the things they really learned. They have so much fun, and they actually take something important and educational away with them.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None.......the staff and the Board work well together.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I've enjoyed meeting and working with such a diverse group of people.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

These are all people dedicated to their work, and they LOVE it........you can tell.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Build a parking lot, and create a fantastic, permanent dinosaur exhibit. Pay the employees more, put the rest in the endowment to continue to fund new exhibits and keep things fresh for the kids.

Ways to make it better...

......if the organization had more funding to comfortably afford to update, maintain and purchase exhibits for the museum..

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Financing the day-to-day demands of the physical structure is a big challenge.........cleaning and maintainance, repairs and updating of computers, heating and cooling, plumbing.

One thing I'd also say is that...

This is a fun organization to be involved with, and the Executive Director and Development Director are excellent ambassadors in our community. Everyone involved with the organization is proud to say so.

It's wonderful to have the Childrens Museum in La Crosse. My daughters have had birthday parties and Girl Scout sleepovers at the museum. The museum is so proactive in bringing new exhibits and activities to our community. It's a great place for children to learn, interact and have fun.
