Stopped by after a visit to Barlow Planetarium. It had a beautiful collection of paperweights and glass art. Many of the pieces were behind glass so it was accessible to families but I would not bring very young children there.Thanks for the five-star. We're glad you enjoyed the visit. We do welcome people of all ages and have an I-Spy game to keep kids entertained, and yes, very young children may be more entertained across the street on the playground.

Mulberry Lane Farm

We provide hands-on experience to educate children and adults about farm animals through guided tours of the farm. You'll have a chance to milk a cow, ride a pony, enjoy a hayride and more! Spring and Summer visitors receive a free souvenir. Fall guest visit the Pumpkin Patch to pick their own free pumpkin.

Reviewed By Susie R - Appleton, Wisconsin, United States

Great place to see a lot of animals. Plenty of baby ducks, chicks and kittens. You can see plenty of old farm equipment and there are a lot of hands on activities. It is a little expensive if you have 3 or more people in your family going. The only down fall was the hayride out to get your pumpkin. You have to carry your pumpkins up a huge hill along with anything else you already had in your arms. They could use some high school kids down there to help out. Then you have to put them in a wagon and pull it back to the main area on a gravel road. They should have two wagons running one to take you out and one to bring people back. Other than that it was a great experience. The food, muffins and caramel apples were wonderful and we all got to milk a cow! The staff is extremely helpful and friendly.

Fox Cities Performing Arts Center

Reviewed By ReadRibbet

The Fox City PAC is an amazing facility in the heart of downtown Appleton. For a town of its size, it rivals almost all other similar venues in the state. We have been there multiple times for plays, musicals, concerts and speakers. There is virtually no bad seat in the house and the staff is always friendly. Parking can be a bit tricky near the PAC but it's easy to park on a side street and walk over. Centrally located near restaurants and bars for a stop before or after. The offerings are better than almost all other state venues often getting national tours before other locations in the state. It is a great place to catch a show or a concert.

Our favorite storybook character visited the museum. They had coloring activities after the book reading. He loved every minute of it. He also loved playing in the 3 year old and under area. It's gated off so you don't have to worry about your little one running away from you. Great place for my almost 2 year old.

Weis Earth Science Museum

The official minerology and geology museum of the state of Wisconsin.

Reviewed By Seldom-seen-schultz

I've used that title before, because it fits several smaller gems we have in the area. This museum, though small, has an outstanding collection of gems and the geologic timeline of Wisconsin exhibit is well presented and laid out. Sure, it is heavy science at times and may be tough for pre-teens to absorb and appreciate, but so what! Take them anyway and give them the opportunity to listen to the knowledgeable and very well spoken guides this place has on staff. More that worth the nominal entrance fee and if you tie it on with a Planetarium visit, it's like a little bonus.
