“Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

I loved this place! Kids can run around, dress up, build, color, make music, dance, and more! Great activities for kids under 12, and even pretty cool for the parents too. My favorite area was the music room and the coloring room.

“Nice smaller museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

Our granddaughter (4 yr old) loves this museum. It's filled with fun play areas that spark creativity. One you get past the extremely slow check-in process and the required orientation (inside voices, share, play gently) your kids will have a blast. They have a "what-ever-you-can-pay" policy so try to be generous. Other similar museums charge $6+/person.

“A must see for families with smaller kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

Great interactive exhibits! Price of entry is ridiculously cheap for what you get. So-so cafe area for frazzled parents needing caffeine to keep up with the hyper kids. At least there is cafe! Parking is difficult, but if you don't mind parking at the Tacoma Dome Parking Garage (free for first 3 hours), you can take the light rail for free, get down at the Convention Center and walk down one block to CMT and catch other Tacoma must sees.

This place is great for children 10 and under. The kids love all the areas. You can even bring your own snacks.

“One of the best ways to spend a rainy afternoon.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2013

There are lots of damp, rainy days in Wastern Washington so this is a very fun place for children to play, learn, explore, and use their imagination. We have taken our young grandchildren there many times and they always enjoy themselves. For adults there is the all important coffee bar for a little pick-you-up while the kids play.
