A whole day of fun and learning then on to the ball game for a great day in Phoenix without breaking the bank and picking up some great photos and memories!

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.

If you live in the area, it is probably best to get the year membership. We relocated out of the area and tend to pay the daily admission now. Once my child learned to walk, the museum was much more exciting for him since he was able to do more--he is now 2.5 yrs. We love the huge treehouse once... More

This is the most amazing children's museum, it is pricey, but the membership makes it worth it. The place is completely kid proof and kid friendly for kids of all ages. My three year old son is in heaven running up and down the three story climber, through the noodle forest and doing the grocery shopping along with the car... More

We just got back for a week's stay in Phoenix and because it was so hot we took the kids to the Children's Museum to get out of the heat. We thought it was excellent for the 5 years to 12 years age group! We had gone once before (about 2 years ago) and our youngest I think got so... More

My kids are 4 and 7 and we spent almost 6 hours here. What a great cool way to spend a day in Phoenix. My kids would have stayed longer if they could have. They climbed the structure, spent hours playing with both of the whoosh machines, in the noodle maze, launching owls off the machine, racing cars down the... More

This place is very awesome for kids but the toys are so dirty and full of germ. Doesn't seen like there's designated staffs for cleaning the toys on a daily basis. All toys are black and grey color. Will not take my kids back unless there's improvement with the cleanness of the toys.

Brought the kids here to burn off some energy on a scorching July day in phoenix. The kids and myself both left exhausted and entertained. 3 floors of activities, plus an outside area. My kids played in the maze, rode tricycles through the obstacle course, spent time in the art center, grocery shopped, played mailman, and ran through a crazy... More

My 7 year old and 4 year old were both able to play at the Children's Museum without getting bored. I like that they have things that can be played with by all ages. My 4 year olds favorite was definitely the little store they had where the kids could take items off the shelf and buy them from the... More
