This place is for younger kids. Kids over 7 will probably be bored. My kids love playing in the tree house and practicing their gold swings. Two hours is more than enough time to explore MY Museum.

It was nice to get out of the sun for a bit and go to a very nice children's museum. Small, but tons of activities for my preschooler. I especially loved all the costumes that children could play in, the ball apparatus, and the boat. My 3.5 year old spent most of the afternoon here and my 9 month old daughter got to crawl around in some padded spaces. Perfect!

This was our first visit after looking for an affordable activity for our little girls. The Aquarium is very costly for a family of four, but this was a great alternative! Our little girls loved all of the many exhibits. The staff was very friendly. The craft station was nice and big with lots of supplies. I think their favorite station was the stage & dress-up area and the bubble wand stand. My kids had such a blast, they asked to go back the next day. We'll definitely return the next time we visit the Monterey area.

Great for kids 8 and under. Inventive and entertaining. Well made. Just relax while the kids play! Bring a friend for your little ones and they'll be busy until they get hungry.
