The stations (rooms) are not regularly put back in order, so elements of the activity get strewn around into other rooms. There was no staff around to help handle animals, provide play dough, or dispense treats. Seemed to just be someone with the pay for painting a craft area or ticket person. Was a bit icky. I really wonder how... More

My son and I found the Playseum underwhelming and disappointing. It's a cute concept, but very poorly executed. Here is why it didn't work for us: 1) The space is poorly maintained. The carpet is stained, the walls desperately need a new coat of paint (and even have holes and gashes in some spots), and everything feels cluttered even when... More

The idea behind this kid's museum is on target, but the areas themselves are grungy and sloppily designed. The cost, at $7 a person is quite high given that my son was done playing in about 20 minutes. Also, any activities, such as painting, etc. came at an additional cost. The painting area that was free was gross. I have... More

Playseum is a wonderful place to take your kids to enjoy helping them learn to use and expand their imaginations. Located downstairs in a building on Wisconsin Avenue... you and your young kids can choose from a myriad if games and activities from decorating cupcakes to making your own toothpaste. Hear a story or learn to play an instrument. The... More

We took our one and half year old there yesterday and we could not wait to get out. This place is plain disgusting. It feels like you were in a dirty small storage area with bunch of junk thrown around. I doubt anyone ever cleans the place. Carpets are NASTY. Toys are old and dirty. We will never ever set... More

It was the most terrible birthday party, which we organized for my daughter. Staff had no attention to guests and children. We paid 200 bucks for a holiday, where it was stated, that every child and adult gets cake and drinks, as a result, the staff set the table just for kids, milk poured into small cups. When we asked... More

We were visiting my sister who lives nearby and my 5 year old and 2 1/2 year old had a great time exploring the various spaces there. Favorites included the bunnies and turtle room, the safari and Grandma's attic.

Way too loud, cramped, they need limits on how many ripple can be there at one time! Harried....insane....expensive. They're holding g parents hostage on rainy cold days.

I took my 3 year old here just a few days before I was to deliver his little sister as our final mommy son date day. You would miss this place if you didn't know it was there even though it is located on a main street. there is a fee to get in and it could be considered pricey... More

Went there with an out of town 3 year old grand daughter. She enjoyed herself. It is too expensive, and it makes no sense to charge for the person bringing the child. The adult is not using the equipment or participating in art activities.
