I'm a nanny, and I took two boys ages two and five to this adorable museum. I wanted to take them because it was a rainy day I've never been there before and it's so much fun. There is an art center also where the kids can paint and do coloring. And then they also have this big gigantic looks... More

My toddler had a blast! They have so many activities for toddlers up to adults. It is well worth the visit for all those mom and dads trying to figure out something to do with your little ones.

I really liked the DCM! my sister and I took our kids; a 5yo, 2yo, and 5mo. There was so many activities! We spent a great deal of time in each exhibit exploring and learning. The 2yo (boy) loved all of the slides; the 5yo especially loved the pirate story time and treasure hunt. She also liked the speedway that... More

I don't know why people gave it a bad review. My 5 year old loved this place. I have been to a few children's museums around the country. Though, this one seems a little older, it still has a lot to do and she had fun. And that is all that matters!

Went on Saturday May 9th and arrived around 10:30am. I love that they have free parking there. The price was about $9 per person which I thought was totally reasonable for what they had there. I've been to many children's museums and this was the least crowded one i've been to. Very happy that they had free parking. There was... More

My son enjoys coming here and playing in the different exhibits (especially the water table), but I am less than impressed. It's a good place to get out of the sun in the summer or cold in the winter, and there is enough to occupy the kids for an hour or two; however, there is just so much unfulfilled potential... More

The children's museum is best when they have activities Going on such as the nutcracker performance, ice skating, or when they had the summer blast and had a "block party" outside. They also have giant blocks and my son and I always make the best fort!

We figured we would bring our 3 year old here. It was a waste of our time and money. We paid 27.00 dollars for him to play with the same truck that we have at our house. There really isn't much for kids to do under 5.

We have been coming here for a few years now. Although daughter is older she still likes the art room and the climbing structure. This museum is smaller than say Baltimore or Philly but is quite entertaining. No food available other than a few snacks/water/juices. There are several restaurants nearby.

We went on Thanksgiving weekend and were surprised that the museum wasn't very busy, by the time we left, we realized why... Many of the exhibits were broken or in disrepair, efen the basic ones. We actually went because I read there is a new touch aquarium. Either this needs to be re-named or replaced. It's about a 10' x... More
