It was interesting, I thought there would be more things to see. wee are in the State Capitol. My seven year old is pretty smart for his age. He was a little bored. My son enjoyed it for the most part.

My son's daughter (13 months old) and my daughter's son (two and a half years old) can play for hours at the Sacramento Children's Museum in Rancho Cordova without getting bored. On our last visit, one of our grandson's friends visited the museum for the first time and he loved it as well. In fact, his mother decided to purchase... More

We took our 3yo grandson today. He surprised us with what he was drawn to. We thought he would go for the water play or the trains and blocks. Instead he went to the "store", latched onto a shopping cart, filled it up with "groceries" and walked all over the place with it. He did enjoy weighing things on the... More

We celebrated a birthday party here. They provide a room for an hour or so, allowing you to have some privacy to sing a Happy Birthday song, and afterwards the kids enjoyed the 'museum'. This is more a playground, with lots of educational toys. A great choice, not only for a birthday party but also to take your kids. Ages... More

I took my 2 year-old and infant to this place while visiting family in Sacramento. I would think for a city that size, their children's museum would be awesome. The "museum" is a shop in a business strip, not a stand-alone museum for kids. Tiny and expensive ... we had to pay admission for myself, my husband and my in-laws... More

I've taken my 5-year-old to a few children's museums and was interested in this one because there was a lot of hype. It was a real disappointment from a children's museum perspective. The exhibits make very little attempt to be educational. However, if you are just looking to keep your young child (5 and under) busy for an hour or... More

I got a deal for this place on Groupon so we took our two kids ages 4 and 6. It's a small place but it kept my kids busy for 3 hours. The water play area was my sons favorite while my daughter prefered the plexiglass wall painting area. Not sure what their regular price is but for $16 for... More

This museum is cute and hands on, but very small. It's geared towards the very young, I'd say less than age 4. The young kids really seemed to enjoy it, but its a little pricey for such a short trip. It was also extremely crowded on a Saturday, so I'd recommend trying to go during the week.

There is just a ton of things to do such as crafts, dress up, play house, interactive displays and just play with new friends. The staff do a great job of keeping everything neat and keeping the kids busy.
