We had such a fun day at the children's museum. It was nice that there was things the adults could do with the kids. Like playing grocery store or cooking. The kids laughed like crazy at the body noises when playing with the nose and mouth. Great day, very nice and helpful staff. Loved that it was all one floor.

Exhibits change often with some standard ones being upgraded. Kids from 12 months to 6 years will find multiple fun things to do.

My kids which range from 8-15 loved coming here. Each one of them had a great time learning but just being a kid. Definately a place I will return to.

Grandchildren enjoyed the experiences presented to them, The medical and police area was a major hit. The interaction of staff with the children was very good and kept the children interested in their subject they were presenting

If you have elementary age kids, and especially if you need to entertain them on a hot Tucson day, this is a great option. I've seen far better children's museums in other cities, but Tucson doesn't have many indoor options for kids, so this has to do. And I don't think the kids really notice, to tell you the truth....

If you're traveling through Tucson with children, the Children's Museum is not to be missed! The exhibits and activities will put smiles on the faces of the children as well as their parents. Recommend ages 3-12 years.

As I live in Tucson, I have had occasion to visit the Children's Museum many times both with my children and grandchildren. While it is MUCH improved since my kids were young, it still isn't up to standard compared with other cities of our size. While the exhibits are ok, a lack of employees to keep up with the tidying...
