“Great place on a rainy day”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

Our 6 year-old daughter LOVED this museum. We were visiting CA from Chicago for a 9-day trip, and this was one of the highlights of the trip for her. She loved making the clay characters and making a claymation movie, and was a huge fan of making music videos. She was the perfect age for all the activities, including the art projects, dress-up area, and the activities I already mentioned.

“Creators, Enter Here”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

I love the mission of the Children's Creativity Museum. They want children to develop from mere consumers of media, to creators of media. The entire museum is meant for kids to problem solve, imagine, create, and discover all the materials and ideas they can use to create new methods, ideas and entertainment.

Love that the carousel is right outside the museum, and that the Yerba Buena kids park is in the same area. Perfect place in the city for families to enjoy their day.

“Awesome for kids”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

My kids didn't want to leave this place. We spent over 3 hours there. They built robots, made music videos, claymation vidoes, and worked in the computer lab designing who knows what...they had a great time with all of the creativity labs and studios. We could have spent another few hours there...

Would take them there often if we lived close. Need to get them off the ipad, tv.

“Great Jewishnutcracker ballet show for kids, low price, high value”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

Despite a screw-up at the "at will" table for our three tickets, 20-minute delay to start the ballet, and piped-in Tchaikovsky, my family loved the Jewishnutcracker ballet with its Chanukah theme! The seats are all great, comfortable and accessible with great views. The dancers were fabulous. Their costumes lovely. The intermission snacks tasty. Great entertainment for pre-teens! I wouldn't recommend this for anyone over say ten years old, except friends and relatives of the cast.
