I've been to the Children's Museum a number of times with my children over the past 2 years. They are now 2 and 3. Their favorite area is the little toy center in the middle and the grocery store but really that's it. I don't feel like it's very educational and they get bored easily there. It's honestly not worth... More

After I had taken my kids to the Children's Museum in New Orleans, I was thrilled to learn that we had our very own in Acadiana. It is much smaller than others I have been to, but it is still great. There is so much for the kids to explore that they just have a blast each time we go.... More

Great place for kids and parents to play! Small grocery store with grocery carts and with cash registers for check out...bubble station...small cafe with many fake food items...stage and arts and crafts. Very clean environment and a great place to go on those hot afternoons or a rainy day! We will definitely return when we visit Lafayette

The museum has such creative activities for the children and New Years' Noon is always a big hit!! The children are always made the focal point there!

Perfect place for grandparents and grandchildren to spend the day. Since it was right before Christmas, the Santa Workshop was set up and included dress up clothes for the children to wear. Loved being able to stand instead the bubble.

This place is great fun for kids. I recommend you stay the whole day. You can get your hand stamped, walk to Subway for lunch, and get back in after lunch. They have clean restrooms and baby changing table. There are things to do for kids of all ages, from toddlers to maybe 11 or 12 year olds. There is... More

It was just ok. Kids were bored about 20 minutes into the visit. They had fun "grocery shopping" at the mock store setup.
