I went there with my 21/2 year old niece. She had a great time and I had a lot of photo opportunities. The entire thing is like a big playground. I could not put my hands around calling it a museum, which is why I gave it a four instead of five. So if you want to bring young children... More

Everything is hands on so you can't be there and not have fun touching everything... We were there from opening to closing time. We all had a great time..

Been here many times with kids from ages 1 to 7 and they are never bored or disappointed! Great place if the weather is too hot or rainy as you can spend a good portion of your day here. I would suggest bringing your lunch as they have a nice café where you can add chips or drinks to your... More

Whether you're a local or visiting, the Children's Museum of Phoenix is one of the best places ever to take a child. It's a three(?) story tall building with activity rooms for all ages, ranging from make believe grocery stores, to painting rooms, mazes constructed of transparent tubing tunnels, experiment areas such as allowing objects to flow through see-through conduit...

Recently when my young grandchildren (18 months and 3 years old) visited I was concerned that the Phoenix hot summer weather would curtail our adventures. Luckily, I found the Children's Museum of Phoenix and my concern was short-lived. The Museum is an amazing place that has activities for very young and young children (I'd say that children over 6 years... More

If you have young children and live in the Phoenix area, I'd highly recommend investing in a membership. The kids will want to return here again and again, nearly as often as they currently watch that "special" movie favorite endlessly. The first room provides a real "wow" experience with a ceiling high climbing area, labyrinth style--though many kids just get... More

This is the best membership for summers in phoenix. It gives children a place to learn and have fun while staying out of the summer heat. Well worth the membership price!

The first Friday of every month is free. They also offer adult play several times a year. The kids love this place. I worked as a volunteer for Children's museum's convention and I didn't hear a single negative. So many people were taking pictures to incorporate in their museums around the country.

Took my two children (6 yo boy, 5 yo girl) to the Phoenix Children's Museum on Fall Break. Surprisingly, the place was pretty empty. From the moment we walked in the door, the kids had a blast and I enjoyed myself too! All of the exhibits are hands on and are super fun. There is something for everyone as you... More

This is a great place for young children (2-12ish). We went with about 95 kindergarten students and everyone had a ball! The part that most of the students liked was a climb on ramps up to just below the ceiling to where there is an old time bathtub they can sit in. There is an activity room where students can... More
