A great place for the kids (Grandkids) to burn a lot of energy

Physical, educational, and very entertaining located in an old elementary school in downtown Phoenix right near other attractions like the Science museum, Baseball park, and more.

Went here with my almost 2 year old and 4 year old. They both had a blast. Spent about 4 hours trying to do everything! So many exhibits! Grocery shopping and pizza making were huge hits. They also loved the climbing structure and scarf wind pipe! But there wasn't anything about this place that they didn't like, there's even a... More

Came here with my wife and two sons for the "Noon Years Eve" and had a great time. Very large multistorie climbing platform on the first floor. Lots of things for toddlers and up. My kids loved the tricycle car wash! Well worth a visit.

We took our three girls ages 4 and 6 to the museum and they loved it. They could have spent their entire time on each floor and different exhibits but we had to push them along to see the entire building. Their favorite was the kiddie grocery store - they stayed in there for over an hour. Well done, well... More

This place is filled with hands-on learning activities. The "tree-house" is amazing. My son especially liked the ball room. The arts and crafts room is worth the trip and time.

I can't say enough wonderful comments about the CMoP! We took our 3 boys here (ages 1, 3 & 13) and everyone was highly entertained. The first floor climbing structure is incredible and very uniquely designed. The second floor noodle exhibit created loads of laughter and fun. The pizza kitchen, grocery store, build your own ramp, spinny seats and ice... More

A super place to take children for 2-6 hours! Many well designed and maintained rooms and features. There is a cafe for lunch. Plan time and energy to spend a lot of time there. The Museum exceeded our expectations--we will definitely return. Highly recommended.

The museum is a delightful place for children under eight to visit, explore, engage, learn, develop, grow. The many interactive areas are thoughtfully and creatively conceived, with ample variety in the activities to occupy young children for several hours at a time. The museum's safe, well monitored, and fun. However, at $11 per person for anyone over the age of... More

Took the family and had a nice time. There are some fun interactive activities that seem to perfect for a child of around 4-6 years old. My son had fun with the cars, the water games, and the play structures. Good deal for the price.

Our children really enjoyed this museum. However, we felt that our younger two children enjoyed it more then our older son. More suitable for younger children. We also used a groupon ticket for entrance.
