We have been taking our 7 yo granddaughter to the Children's museum in Phoenix since she was 2. We could spend all day there; there is such a variety of activities and she never tires of them: noodle forest, store, restaurant, climbing structure, art room, bicycles. I was impressed the first time we visited and continue to love this museum... More

My 1 year old daughter loved it here. This is more like a play area than a museum. She loved the area where you can do grocery shopping. The arts & crafts area is nice too.

My family and I visited this museum with my niece who was 2 years old. There were MANY things to see and do here. I felt like a child myself being here, all of the attractions in the museum were both adult and child friendly and there was no shortage of anything to do! Make sure you bring your energy... More

We had a great time at this Children's museum. My 5 year old loved every minute of our 4 hour visit. This place does seem to focus on physical and pretend type of play areas. There is a 3 story tower in the front where kids can explore different silly areas, and a pool tube forest which my son loved... More

Visited with my granddaughter who had a great time. We especially liked the arts and crafts room where where kids can paint, cut out paper designs, and do other simple crafts.

It felt like a violation from how much money it cost for what we got out of it. It is not a museum. It doesn't teach the kids anything. They play. Yes, they like it. But, it is far from what I imagined. They should not be charging adults the same price as a 2 year old. So wrong.

Kids had lots of fun for a few hours. Best for under 10 years old , though any age is fine. Easy parking. Clean and large.

I had to meet someone here and viewed the museum after the meeting. So glad I decided to stay and check it out. While a definite for children, I highly recommend it for adults as well.

This place has a maze of things for the children. Even adults can keep themselves busy by helping the children. There are areas for crafts, arts and works like using the pipes and making enclosures. This gives the children the idea to use the pipe joints like the T-section and U joints. There is a separate section for Play dough.... More
