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

I will never again bring my children here nor have a birthday party here. Its suppose to be a "Children's Museum" but your kids can even make any noise during a party. They were so rude when it was time for them to clean up they only gave us 2 minutes to get our stuff out. When I took us... More

When in Lake Charles and you have the chance to bring your children the Children's Museum located on Broad St is a great idea. I was pleasantly surprised at what there was to offer at this neat children's wonderland.

Maybe it's because I'm use to the Indianapolis Children's Museum, but this place was a bit worn and not much to do. I can see this place being a good activity for a rainy day, but if you're just vacationing, I wouldn't bother. My four year old had much more fun feeding/chasing ducks nearby than this place.

My sisters and daughters were here to visit us. All of us enjoyed a lot. Most of the activities are entertaining. Don't forget to grab your cameras and little bit of snacks/drinks as it will take atleast 3 hours to come out. Will definitely go again to watch kids playing. Happy kids, Happy parents.

His grandparents too him here and he really enjoyed it. We felt that the price was steep but he had no complaints. I would recommend that the price be dropped for parents who bring their children must watch and should have an incentive to return though but there was alot to do and he had lots of fun.
