To enter the museum there is a full fee for kids over 1 year. But many attractions, specially workshops and art crafts are definitely for older kids. Definitely not worth the money. Lot of attractions were under construction and therefore closed. Most of attractions were not working properly or dysfunctional at all. We`ve visited many museums in US, some of... More

We truly loved it, had a great fun and we stayed there 3 hours.The ground floor is like a small village with a supermarket where kids can buy anything and it looks like real stuff. There is also a bank, doctor's office, fire station ect. Superb! The first floor deals with journey, travel, ships... you can be a real captain... More

It was, by far, the attraction our 15 months baby loved the most! It is absolutely fun for kids all ages and there is a section specially dedicated to small kids. They can just run around the place and try and touch everything. Brilliant!

Stopped at the museum to spend an afternoon with our 6 year old daughter. The price was high and the same for both adults and children (+2 years and above full price). No breaks in price - not even for larger families. The only attendants present were the cashiers and entrance- and they were clearly indifferent in their manner. The... More

This a a wonderful place to take small kids. Really nice facility with tons to do and see. Our 2 year old son loved it. Probably best for kids under 10 years old. Even great for little ones just learning to walk, but when we went it was very crowed. Unfortunately, there were so many people, it almost made it... More

Our 3 yr old spent the major part of the visit in the "Dora" section! The place is extremely interactive and there is something to do for everyone. This place also has a subway where you can grab something quick and they have several events for kids (music party, arts, string beads, interactive exhibits) Be sure to go!

Went with a 2 & 4 year old. Everything is very poorly taken care off,and the whole place is hardly more than a playground, and a poor one at that. My kids have a better time at a "free" park than here. From ripped and over worn showcase item such as hospital bed to over 80% of the exhibits to... More
