We went to the children's museum of Phoenix yesterday morning. It was a little crowded but the kids had fun. The staff were all very nice and the exhibits were just perfect for little ones. They even had some "baby zones". The 3 story climbing structure was AMAZING! The art studio was well equipped and had lots of options available.... More

My husband and I took our 3year old here a few days a go while on a business trip. She has a blast! It is really more of a place where children can use their imagination rather than learn about science and social studies. She began her day on the climber where she traveled thru a tree top like maze.... More

We thought its a museum and we took our kid there. Don't get me wrong, its a nice place, friendly staff. There are lot of things your kids will love to do; climbing, making stuff, colouring, cycling etc. But what comes to your mind when you think about museum its not that. Its an indoor playground. It cost you $11... More

Lots of fun for the little ones in your life! Climbing, exploring, creating . . . it's all there. We have taken three of our grandchildren for years, and are anxious to introduce our youngest to its wonders.

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.
