The Children’s Museum of Fond du Lac is your
passport to the world!
When your children walk into the museum, they’ll embark on an adventurous tour around the world, from Lake Winnebago to an Italian pizzeria and the African Savannah. Visitors from toddlers to tweens can cast images in the Shadow Safari, explore the Great Toddler Reef, build a Great Wall of China, exchange money for world currencies, put on a show in the Big Apple Theater or produce a radio broadcast.
While the interior of the museum allows children to travel the world, over 10,000 square feet of WinnePLAYgo, our outdoor space, focuses on Fond du Lac’s “backyard”. A Shanty Town, Trike Trak, Garden, and Picnic Area encourages children to explore their natural environment, inspire creativity and develop healthy behaviors.
