descriptionAbout Family Museum
Operate a crane, shop for groceries, sort mail, and climb into a tree house at the fun-filled and interactive Family Museum. This hands-on museum located in Bettendorf, Iowa, is geared towards children 8 and younger and encourages families to play and learn together.

Discover how food moves from the modern farm to the local store by caring for animals, driving a combine, and moving grain in the farm exhibit. Add obstacles or raise and lower water levels as you watch your boat make its journey down a 28-foot waterplay table resembling an actual stretch of the Mississippi River. Chat with your neighbor or wave to the mail carrier in the town square exhibit which includes features of everyday life. Make alphabet soup, wash the laundry, and splash around in the virtual pond (without getting wet!) in PlayHouse.

In addition to our hands-on exhibit area, we offer a private outdoor playground and waterplay area, a museum store, dance studios, art and clay studios, and party rooms. Check our website for special events and our wide range of Drop-In programs.
