This place is amazing! I will begin by saying that because I don’t think I will be able to tell you with words how much fun we had. My boys are still asking to go back and it has been over a month.

The museum is divided into little areas that the children can learn about (Old West, Indians, China, England, Africa, etc.). My boys ran from place to place. They also had knights and an Oval Office replica. One of their favorites was the music room. They could play lots of different instruments. There is a craft area, an area with train tables, a fire engine, and much more. Each area has dress up costumes and a bookshelf with books about this topic. You could spend a long time here. I am considering getting a pass. It is a bit of a drive (it’s in Ogden), but you could spend all day. They allow you to leave and come back because there is a no food policy. While we were there, they also invited everyone to come to a story time and then make a craft related to the story. I loved how the whole museum was focused on reading.

They even have little potties, which proved useful because we have a child who is beginning potty training.

In the middle of the museum is a large treehouse–probably where it got its name. This is how you get upstairs. There are a few different ways to climb and of course, we had to try them all.

I have so many fun pictures, so I apologize for the picture overload. Hopefully you can get a sense of the museum and how much fun you can have there.

My boys loved dressing up. Apparently George Washington is having a rough day.

In the Oval Office. I don’t know if I would vote for him as President, he’s a little unpredictable! 🙂

Who do you think you are? King Arthur?
