Our 1 year old daughter had a BLAST at the MY museum. There was tons of things she could play on, and it was great for her to just be able to run around and touch everything without being told "no"! We went on a Thursday when they have a musician who plays with the kids, which was an added... More

They have activities for kids of all ages. It is unusual for a place that kids under a year will like and get something out of.

I took my nephew here and it was great. He is young, only 18 months old, but there was so much to do for all ages of children. The people working here are super friendly as well. Check it out!

Overall nice place for kids to play, but didn't get why adults have to pay for ticket if the attraction is for children.

Fabulous, clean, fun, great place for a rainy day out of the house, or a kids birthday. They do a good job hosting party groups here. Ages 2-6 are ideal.

We just love Monterey County Youth Museum. It's a great place to bring the kids and know they are safe to play and engage with all the exhibits. Great staff that gets the kids involved, too. Live music on Thursdays 10-10:30am that is totally interactive and fun.

Our 2 and half year old loved it. Inexpensive fun in a clean indoor area. They even have a craft... More

This place is for younger kids. Kids over 7 will probably be bored. My kids love playing in the tree house and practicing their gold swings. Two hours is more than enough time to explore MY Museum.

It was nice to get out of the sun for a bit and go to a very nice children's museum. Small, but tons of activities for my preschooler. I especially loved all the costumes that children could play in, the ball apparatus, and the boat. My 3.5 year old spent most of the afternoon here and my 9 month old... More
