This is a small kid-friendly place with lots of educational play. There's water play tables and fun ball pit surrounding inflatable boat. There's alot of education surrounding Jewish culture which is interesting. There's a little pretend play bakery, shop, puppet theatre, library and also a cushion play area for just the under-two-year-olds. We bought a 10 visit pass for $50... More

I took my four and a half year old here after reading the reviews about it being appropriate for preschool aged children. We were in there for 30 minutes before my son ran out of things to do. It may be that we went on a bad day because one of the few things they have to play with is... More

We spent a couple hours in the afternoon here. I took my twins (almost 4) and infant with my 12yearold sister. The museum is small but fun. The kids had a blast but after an hour we'd seen and done it all so they did it again! They really did not want to leave.

Small in size, but big fun! That's how I'd describe the Zimmer, one of LA's hidden treasures. Two things to understand before you go. (1) This a museum strictly for the pre-school crowd. Older kids might find the activities too juvenile and/or be annoyed by the toddlers. (2) This is a jewel of a museum, i.e. it's NOT a destination... More

I had wanted to go to this museum for many years. I finally had a chance and went this month (October 2012). The parking is underground and a security guard has you open the back of the car (we had a SUV) before you are allowed in to park. The parking is free. The museum is not. It was $15.50... More

Went to museum with two (almost) 3 year olds, and they loved it. There are at least 12 hands-on exhibits downstairs in a loop, and a few upstairs including an airplane fuselage that they love to sit in and 'fly' 2 of the favorites downstairs were the water tables, and the rubber raft that sits on a few feet of...

The place turned out to be smaller than I anticipated. However, it is fun with great educational things for the kids. I was visiting from out of town so it would have helped if they had a cafeteria or somewhere for us to purchase snacks from. They have vistors leave the stroller upstairs right at the front desk - I... More
