We stopped in to check out this adorable hands on activity/learning center right in downtown Berkeley. There are areas for water play, pretend store, painting wall, Spaceship with adorable spacesuits for the kids to wear, quiet reading nook, craft activity, etc... parents can enjoy watching their kids explore and experiment in ways that would create a mess in your own...

My grandkids have loved coming here. If you plan to come often, or if there are several family members coming along, it is a good idea to look into a membership, as the entry fees can add up. There are some areas that remain nearly the same from year to year, while other exhibits change. There is usually a water-play... More

Liked: super hands-on. Multiple rooms that hit on different stimuli. Loved that if you become a member (we did not) there is a toy-borrowing system. they have a whole "library" of toys and you may borrow up to 3 at a time. really, really cool program. Disliked: very choppy, so that it was difficult to keep an eye on my... More

They have very limited open hours, so check before going. It is especially good with toddlers and up to about 8 years old. Lots of activities. People bring their own food and either eat in the tiny lunch room or out in the hall.

Went there with my 2-yr-old and 3-month-old a couple months ago. I love the products in the museum store--it's a one-stop shop for encouraging my toddler to learn through play. Every time I go to Habitot I walk away with something--that day with 5 items! Wish I knew they had such a nice raincoat and rain boots selection before I... More

I was very unhappy with our recent visit, I thought the place was very unsanitary, the play areas didn't seem like they had been cleaned in awhile and we were there shortly after it opened, so you would think it would be clean. The bathroom was disgusting too. On top of all of that, it was very expensive, I'm not... More

I took my two year old daughter to this museum (my nine year old had to stay home with Dad because the age range is only 0-6), and we had fun but I wouldn't say it's the best children's museum around. There is a small play store/restaurant with play food and a couple of cash registers and some shopping carts... More

My grandkids love this place. There are multiple areas for little ones with limited attention spans. They can paint, wearing aprons, and slop all over. They can create individual art projects with glitter and glue. They can plan in water. They can play with a train set, climb in a little house, shop in a little "grocery store" and many... More

I went with my friend and her twin two year old boys and they had a blast. One of them didn't even get passed the first exhibit of the spaceship he was having so much fun. While it's small, there's lots for little kids to do. They have a section for the "artist" in the family or a local grocer.... More
