It's been about a year and half since I've been here but I had to come back to review it because it has become the standard to which I compare other children's museums. The place is really amazing! The Krispy Kreme donut factory was so memorable for my son that he occasionally asks if we can go back. There is a beautiful crocheted climbing art structure by a Japanese artist; it was fun for my son to swing on and older kids could climb all the way up.

The Reynolda house is a must-see while in Winston-Salem. We went while the Ansel Adams exhibit was on display and it was one of the best photography exhibits I have ever seen. The entry fee is $14 per adult to enter the home and there are discounts for students and military. The home itself was the summer home of the Reynolds family and there is an informative video at the entrance that goes through the family history and the influence of Katharine Smith Reynolds.

I love taking my 2 kids here. I have a 2 year old and a 7 year old, they have something for both, even stuff for adults to enjoy. You check out the website for events that are going on. My kids loved the Frozen winter adventure they had going on and I am pretty sure they have a sensory day for kids also. They have a nice little gift shop and different educational shows that play there. If you have never been here before you should give it a try.
