Cute little children’s museum in downtown Rutherfordton. We went as an escape after being snowed in at our Lake Lure cabin for two days. The museum is small and shows some wear and tear, but it was exciting enough for my 21 month old. The...More

When the grandkids come to visit, this is a first stop. What a great hands in kids museum. Don't miss the veterinary display where your little one can doctor the stuffed animals. And the kids just love their very own kids size grocery store. There...More

Don't judge this place by the size from the outside. I am telling you, for children up through maybe age 7, this place cannot be beat for the price! Admission is so reasonable compared to other children's museums. On the first Friday on the month,...More

This museum is a great place to spend a rainy day. My almost 3yr old loves it. It's like a mini version of what you'd find in Charlotte or a big city, but still plenty to do to spend a couple hours.

This was our second visit to Kidsenses. Last trip was about 16 months ago. My child, age 7, had a great time! But many of the areas need a little TLC and updating.

Probably one of the most visited places in Rutherford County, Kid Senses is a great place to bring the kids and not only is it fun, but they will come away having learned something new!
