don't let the word "Museum" throw you off...this is a VERY fun place to take your kids or grand-kids...heck, it's fun as an adult, but just like going to see an animated movie, it's fun to have some children around you as "cover" so no one really knows what a big kid YOU are! :) We LOVE taking all of...

My three and five year olds could have stayed here all day. I've only been to one other Children's Museum (in San Antonio), but this one was so much better. This museum has multiple levels of play, a huge climbing structure, an art center, and a noodle forest all housed in a cool, historic building.

It was a really fun place for the kids but overpriced and way too crowded. It cost $44 for myself and 3 kids which included a 1 year old. It is a little crazy to charge $11 for a one year old! There were several field trips going on and there were kids just running like crazy everywhere. If you... More

We really enjoy this museum. It is an all hands on museum with enough activities for all ages, even adults. This is one of the places my kids ask to go to every time we are in Phoenix.

My 5 year old grandson came for a week visit in Phoenix. This was one of the places we went. I did not expect much. we spent almost a whole day there. There were so many things that grabbed his attention. We would spend a half hour or so on many of the exhibits. This is a pretty good attention... More

We visit Phoenix ever couple years and the kids beg to go here. Its such a fun place for both kids and adults. Its easy to spend a whole day here and we do often. Perfect mix of brain and physical activity.

Even as an adult, I wanted to run around and play with all the stuff!! What an imaginative place for kids! ...it's not a "museum", so don't expect that kind of atmosphere. But it's playgrounds, toys, interactive and imaginative and themed rooms.....so cool! Tired out our kiddo, for sure! :). Our son is 22 months old, and really loved it,... More

My family of 5 went recently. My two youngest are 9 and 4. The last time we were here a couple of years ago, the indoor playground was not built yet. Wow, what a structure. I had to follow my 4 year old up to the top. I'm a big guy so the crawling spaces were tough, but I well... More

My wife and I brought our daughter here two years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. We brought her back again with our one year old son this time and had a blast. There is something for all ages and you can easily spend the whole day here. It is truly one of the best children's museums in the nation.
