Took my three kids - 3 1/2, 7, & 9 - while on vacation in Phoenix area. While everything pleased the little guy, all of the kids were impressed by the Climber - basically a 3 story climbing apparatus with all sorts of creative tunnels and hiding places (bathtubs with wings, etc). Definitely worth a trip if you want an... More

it was a great place to spend the afternoon. My kids had a blast. They have it set up great and I had to drag my kids out of the building.

We have taken our grandson to this museum many times over the last 3 years and each time has been wonderful. The place is really set up for children to get into dramatic play and interact with other children. The climbing tower has always been a super exciting place for our grandson, but he usually picks a new favorite area... More

in town for my wife's convention and I needed something to do with my kindergarteners. They loved it. I don't think it would be great for kids in upper elementary ages but not sure. About 10 bucks a piece. Nice and clean also.

I really like the Children's Museum of Phoenix. I first found the childrens museum about three years ago and have been going ever since and it is always a great time. My nephew enjoyed the museum so much and never wants to leave. There are lots of great activities and places to explore. One of my nephew's favorite activities is... More

Our kids loved this museum, there is so much to keep their interest they went around to the different exhibits 2-3 times. They have some really unique ideas here and the favorite was the "forest" made from pool noodles. My kids could have stayed for days! Great for all ages :)

Our 6 month old enjoyed the baby room with the mirrors and soft toys. Unfortunately our 3 year old was kicked off he slide in the birth-3 year old area for... More

I love this place! I had the season pass for two years and i got so much use out of it! They have an area just for kids 3 and younger. They have a room to build tents! I think the car wash was my little ones favorite area! They always have little classes going on during the day. The... More

Our toddler was 3 years old and was not interested in the massive 3-storey climbing adventure that is the first sighting upon entrance to the museum. The 2nd floor offers an art workshop, Building Blocks and a 'tricycle wash'. The 3rd floor provided the best activities for our toddler - the favourite being the 'grocery shopping' experience and the 'noodle... More

So much to do and for all ages. You can go there many times and still find new activities for the kids. Plus it's indoors so great for when the weather isn't cooprating. I'd highly recommend.
