Children’s giggles and laughter fill the air as you enter the doors of a fun and educational farmhouse set in the middle of Fargo, North Dakota. You look around and see brightly painted rooms overflowing with building blocks, musical instruments, and even a cow-milking station. There’s not a doubt in your mind, this house is definitely child-proof. You’ve just arrived at The Children’s Museum at Yunker Farm, a special place created for children and families. With over 50 hands-on exhibits designed to engage, educate, and stimulate creativity, it’s a unique place where parents can interact and learn with their children. The house that is now the Children’s Museum was built in 1876 and is the first brick house ever constructed in the Dakota territory. The Children’s Museum began in 1985 as a project headed by the Junior League of Fargo-Moorhead and the Fargo Park District. Volunteers and generous contributors from the F-M community made the renovation of the red-brick farm house possible. The Museum also offers a wide variety of educational programs, special events and outreach programs. The home-like atmosphere makes learning and exploring fun for both children and adults. The 55-acre property is home to a miniature train, carousel, playground, pumpkin patch, nature trails, miniature golf course, children’s alphabet garden, butterfly garden, Pipi Longstocking’s playhouse, community gardens, dog park and football field.
