This is one of the best children's museums in the country; a must see if you are visiting Phoenix with children or grandchildren under 12. There are exhibits for all ages, many are very hands on.

We traveled with children 5 (almost 6), 4, & 2. They all had a great time! Painting a castle in the art room, playing with vacuum cylinders, and climbing the 3-story indoor playscape (indoor is a must at this time of year!). The staff were great, and it was well worth the $11/person!

We took our kids there one day and they didn't want to leave. For the rest of our vacation they kept asking to go back. This is a great interactive place for kids. I love how creative they where when building this place. Almost everything is recycled from something. Our kids are aged 4 and 6 and there was enough... More

Went a while back with my son and it was amazing. He had a lot of fun and was able to play and learn at the same time. Wish we went more when we lived close by.

This is a stand-out museum: ALL hands-on, engaging exhibits. Noodle Forest is the best! Fun watching your children jump in & experience all there is to offer. Fabulous way to spend the day inside, esp if it's a scorching summer day!

This is a great place for kids to go and play and learn. There are several activities for the kids to do and they do end up learning a thing of two.

Though, I'm kind of puzzled why the majority of the children's activities seem to be located in what looks to be a hallway. The rooms had cute signs to keep visitors out. Elephants learning to fly, Dragons learning to blow bubbles etc.

We had a great time at this museum. My 6 year old loved everything there. Even better - we got a huge discount on entry tickets because I'm a teacher (doesn't matter where you live it still counts so make sure you bring a teacher ID). I got me+1 in for free so we only had to pay for my... More

We were in the area on vacation and needed some time indoors. My kids 4 and 2 had so much fun exploring. It was a little crowded, but there was plenty for everyone to see and do. We could have easily spent the whole day there.
