We've been here several times. Kids cost more than parent. I'm not sure why the parent is charged. They have things to do related to history, art, science and occupations.

Its great if you have kids they let you take your time and using you senses, its learning for all. The gift shop has neat stuff you don't see around too much. All with learning the fun way.

For a break from learning about the Gettysburg Battle history, head to this small but wonderful children's museum. Perfect for kids up to age 7 or so. Definitely worth the $5 per child fee. This is a short 2-block walk to an old-fashioned Turkey Hill...More

This place is great for kids under the age of 7. It is all hands on and the kids are allowed to "run free" and explore as they choose. It is 2-story. The only draw back in my opinion is they charge for parents/adults.
