Though this museum aims to please kids, the dinosaur exhibit for one. There is a tiny space that showed Stratford Festival Costumes. I really liked those! The white room completely covered in spots was a challenge on the eyes. Our visit was short, but we could see the kids having a blast! There is even a door at the entrance... More

We have been here several times with our 2-year-old and we enjoy it every time. It's never very busy (which is a shame, but nice for us). There are craft projects throughout the day, a really cool star show, and a main attraction that always changes. We always pack our lunch and eat there. There's a large space with many... More

"Children's Museum" was a good name for this place originally; it could compete with similar attractions in other cities. Our kids liked the various play areas and had a great time. Over the course of subsequent visits, we have noticed a steady change in the atmosphere; now it feels more like a social engineering project with too many politically-motivated exhibits... More

This facility is small by museum standards but great for an afternoon visit. The attractions are well laid out and the museum is very manageable in a few hours. The interactive play area is an excellent addition to the main attractions. The interactive displays are informative and educational........but still fun for kids. Overall, a great place to take your family.... More

Went on a school trip with my class, the students were very engaged in two different activities but the Egyptian exhibit needed more interactive stuff and games for the kids just like the 2nd floor.

My wife and I stopped by, on the last day of March Break, which was a mistake on our part. It was wall to wall children, who seemed to be enjoying themselves immensely. We avoided the dinosaur section, for obvious reasons, and headed to the Holocaust exhibit from Florida. There was some poignant pieces, and some interesting audio-visual pieces. The... More

I really like the Egyptian Exhibit that was featured there. My friends and I really liked the Modern City Exhibit too. Cool sounds, lights and fun.

The Museum is a good family spot. Lots of things for young kids to interact with. They cycle through a few different exhibits a year. They also offer additional camp and night out programs.
