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

Just be informed that this is definitely a museum which appeals to younger children up to age 5 or 6. Older children will be bored. We took our grandchildren ages 3, 9, and 10. The 3 year old loved it but the older children only had a couple of interesting things to do - the Climber and the Noodle Forest.... More

This was our third time here in the last 3 years. Attendants did a great job of watching out for the kids. A lot of interesting things for them to do to keep them entertained. Comfortable temperatures and artistic and creative work done in putting the exhibits together. Reasonable prices when comparing some other activities kids could be doing in... More

Babies and toddlers do not have much activities to enjoy. Bring your own food as the cafe is not good or take the kids somewhere else to eat.

This is a fantastic museum in downtown Phoenix that is great for kids of all ages! They have a special infant/toddler room that only young kids can play in, and attractions for older kids also. Appropriate ages are probably up to 10 years old. It's a bit pricey, so plan to spend the day, or buy the membership and go... More

Sensory materials, child-friendly atmosphere, safe, colorful, scope for role play & some physics exhibits. A high level of interactivity. I think the museum needed to have more rigor, especially for 7-8 year olds. I didn't find enough challenge in the puzzles and games.
