I have been several times as an adult to art exhibitions, music concerts, etc., but I have also gone with my two grandchildren aged 4 and 8 and the loved it. It is a museum where thy can learn, play and be active. They always want to go back again!

This place caters to youngsters but adults will have fun as well. The cost was about 6 for adults and 4 for youngsters,

My son and I had a 5 hour layover in San Jose, so I decided to take him here on a whim to avoid the torture of being at the airport for 5 hours with an active child! We were both so glad we went! It is about 20 minutes from the airport and tons of things for kids of... More

There were a lot of attractions and things for the kids to do, but it wasn't as clean as the kids museums that most people would be used to. A lot of the stuff was also broken. The price was good though.

We visited the museum in june of 2014. There was a private art collection display. In the collection were Picasso drawing , Andy Warhol's Marlyn Monroe's multi color picture collection. ,Monet and numerous other I dont have the list available. If you are an Art buff this collection is well worth your time.

My hubby and I were driving thru San Jose, lost for the third time (confusing streets and lack of addresses) when we stumbled upon this castle like building.

I took my students on a field trip and they had a great time. It's a good place for kids to explore and spend the day.
