“Something for all ages”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

Lots of great exhibits and interactive displays. Nice staff, parent resource room, good food place, and the combination of indoor and outdoor exhibits was very well done. Easily could spend the whole day there. Can see why it is the most popular children's museum!

“Great Place to Learn and have Fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

This is a very good children's museum with lots of things for kids of all ages. The admission is reasonable and they have a parking deck right next door, but plan on paying $8-10 for 3-5 hours. The activities are varied and they range from a fun play area for toddlers to more sophisticated, creative activities for older kids. They have an elaborate climbing maze and rock wall that are favorites of many of the older kids. They have a creative station where you can build and launch rockets, paper airplanes and parachutes. Kidtropolis is a fun area where the kids can experience many of the standard shops and services in a city. Overall, the Children's museum can be a really fun activity. Plan on spending 3-5 hours there. They have a small cafeteria, but don't anticipate fancy food.

Our son is a toddler and loves the Tot Spot for kids his age. I can see us visiting the Children's museum for years to come.

“Best We've Seen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

What can I say? It's the best children's museum we've ever been to. And the admission is very reasonable as are the food prices. The parking, well, fairly expensive ($8 for 3 hours). Our grandson thoroughly enjoyed and we never made it through the whole museum before he got tired. We'll definitely be back. If you live in the area you should become a member.

“Great place, just way too busy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

There were tons of things for the kids to do. It was a Friday morning and the place was ridiculously packed. Waited 15 minute just to get in. Once in we found less busy areas.
