It is small and a little dated, but our kids had fun. Hit a discount to get in, but would not been worth it at full price.

This little gem has a LOT for kids to do. All of it is interactive; all of them hold some degree of hands-on fun for almost any age. As others have commented, it's decidedly low-tech...and that is a good thing in my book! It is...More

We recently visited the Santa Fe Children's Museum with our 5-year-old son. It's not the flashiest place, but it has a lot of low-tech charm. Our son had a great time with the dominoes, magnets, bubbles, wind tube and ball "rollercoasters." The outside area is...More

I expected more and it was expensive for the lack of things for the children to do. It also was not well kept.

Could be difficult to get around. A lot of stairs and obstacles. Pretty crowded as well, so not sure it would be the best in my opinion. Sorry!
