This place was great. There aren't a lot of small child oriented places in Gettysburg so for us this was a gem. My son enjoyed everything he interacted with. It's fun to put them inside a giant bubble. We only had an hour to spend but could have easily stayed 3. It might be more difficult if they were busy but there was only one other family when we were there. The lady running it was friendly and nice.

This place is great, especially for children. The staff is also great, they show the children how different things work. Then the children get to try everything thing out for themselves. It also shows some of the historical was of living, that the children can tryout. This place is all about giving a hands ‚úč on experience. Our grandchildren really enjoyed the time we spent there and we will be revisiting again.

My children had so much fun! My daughter especially enjoyed pretending in the 1860's room, and my son loved having a huge bubble made around him!

This place is amazing! Located not far from downtown Gettysburg. And also sit right next to the library too! They have off street parking too. This place actually looks like a house, but when you went in, it's amazing. Good for all ages, even though grown up will definitely enjoy this place. Because I do! They have gift shop right when you walk in the entrance. The have science experiments room, bubble room, trains, puppet show, words magnets, marble table, plumbing table that you put 2 different water and mix together and back in the day living place. The second floor, offers kinda gym slash buildings stuffs, projector that you can actually draw something on the paper on the walk and take it home. They also have glow room, and don't forget the art room. You can make anything related to craft projects, paints, decorations, etc. They also have 2 pets mouse and a toad. But, don't worry they're in a cages. The admission for ages 2 - 14 is $7. And ages 15 and up is $5. Not bad at all. And it's good for all day, so you can leave the place, go out to eat and come back again to play. Very convenience. And the owner was so nice too! If you have kids and also in town, definitely have to check this place out. Definitely worth you money.

Multiple rooms of nothing but hands-on educational fun ... Our 17 month old and 5 1/2 year old both had an awesome time ... We love to make this a stop now when we come to Gettysburg
