You can't wrong with a day spent at the NB Children's Museum. There are different rooms/stations which keep my kids busy and entertained for hours. The highlights for them are the grocery store section, and the outdoor water station. While it's totally worth it, I...More

This Museum is small but the little ones love the variety of things to look at and explore. From interactive to hands on my (2&4) year olds stayed busy for 3 hours. I LOVE they had a crafting room with a daily craft as well...

This is no Thinkery but we did enjoyed the two hours there. It is not so big (like Houston CM) so kid can go through everything and enjoy them.

This is a great museum! Very interactive exhibits for health, space exploration, camping, ranching, and so much more. Great "water table" exhibit outside and a super cute mini-playground. Fun percussion music area outside as well (grown ups had fun on this one, too). This is...More

Great place for little tykes and elementary age. Lots of hands-on activities that are fun and educational. Easy to spend the better part of a day with both inside and outside activities. Admission is a little pricey compared to other children's museums we have visited.

Busy, busy, busy for my 2 yr. old grandson. Rain kept us inside, but he was so focused on attractions that we didn't miss that area. Inexpensive, but charged for 2 yr. old same adult price-no discounts. Expensive gift shop. Lunch area.

My children (ages 2 and 3) loved the exhibits, especially the outdoor water table. The cost of admission was definitely worth it, as my children played from 10am-noon, we could leave for lunch and naps, and then were allowed to come back from 3-5.
