The Children's Museum of Lake Charles, Louisiana was far below my expectations. Just because it is housed in an old building in downtown LC doesn't mean it should be kept that way. The rooms were messy and stinky and did not reflect the pride a "museum"should have. Maybe the word museum should be removed from the business name and replaced... More

We went with the 1st grade field trip for school. I was surprised that every kid had so much fun. No one complained!

I take my Grandkids every chance to enjoy learning, and having fun at the same time! There are 3 floors and hours worth of entertaining! Staff is friendly, as well.

There is so much to do at this museum! There are lots of hands-on activities, exhibits for exploring and role-playing for little ones! There are even some live animals and Saturday activities and classes. They even host birthday parties! Very close to I-10 and lots of other downtown attractions!

Took two boys (5 and 3) explored three floors of fun activities, adults had fun too. Many science exhibits that are hands on for the kids to play with.

At the original location on Enterprise Blvd. years ago - LC Children's Museum was an excellent choice for birthday parties, play dates or for a rainy day. HOWEVER, sadly the new version is not similar to the old. I brought my nephew for a birthday party last month and was disappointed by the way the party was handled by staff.... More

Where do I start? 1) The diaper changing table in the restroom blocks the door trapping everyone in the stall or blocking the stalls. There is a large loose fire extinguisher on the floor under the sink that my 2 year old knocked over. Fortunately it fell away from her feet instead of on our feet. 2) The big kid... More

Wouldn't recommend going...the place was dirty, things were broken, place was just not kept. Not sure if it was because of birthday parties going on but dont think thats should be an excuse of why items were everywhere and things broken. The bubble room had no bubbles for the kids to play with too. Wasn't very impressed...dont think I will... More
