Testimonials

What Folks are Saying

“What an asset to our community! I am thrilled that my daughter is getting to the age where she will be able to fully immerse herself in all the wonderful activities and exhibits within this museum! Even at 21 months old she had a great time (The Japanese tea room being her favorite). I can’t wait to bring her back and plan play dates with friends here!”

Letizia Mastrantoni

“My kids love the museum. It’s where we go on rainy days, for play dates, and for a way to get out of the house all winter long. My kids have enjoyed it from age six months to 8 years and growing! We enjoy all their programming. For parents of kids with sensory issues, there is a kit you can check out from the front desk. This place is a major asset to Glens Falls!”

Kate Austin-Avon

“We have been fans and members of the museum for awhile now but after having my daughter’s 5th birthday party there we are even bigger fans now. The museum did such an amazing job! They made everything so easy and smooth for me. The decorations were beautiful. The theme was Nesting Dolls, so we were able to use the museum’s rich Russian collection.”
