The Children's Museum can be a little spendy, but your kids will have such a blast, that it is worth it! You can easily spend the whole day there. Bring a snack and a bottle of water, plan to get a little wet or dirty too. The rooftop exhibit is great fun! There are lots of activities to do. The... More

This is an amazing Children's Museum, one of the best I have ever been to. My only regret is that we do not live here to take advantage of such an amazing museum more often. If you are in the area and need to find a place for your child to get some exercise, this is certainly the place. The... More

We were visiting Saint Paul and went to the children's museum for two dayswith a 5 and 2 year old. The facility is set up in rooms, perfect for watching two children of different ages. It was well stocked, the exhibits were in pristine condition, and there was a perfect blend of activity and exploration. My 5 year old loved... More

My kids are always in a wonder when we go to this museum. They have a lot of fascinating activities for children to enjoy and my kids are always so happy when they get to go there. Not many things I dislike, as long as my children are happy, then I'm happy as well.

I can't believe we spent two full days there, but we did. Our one and five year old found so much to do we just couldn't leave. Excellent facility, clean, organized, and nothing was broken. Loved it!

We spent a good portion of a day here with a 3 and 1 year old. There was lots to do, they were worn right out. The admission is very reasonable, especially with the $2 off coupon found at tourist booths.

With many activites from science to everyday living, everything is hands-on. The one problem I thought I would have was when the school buses arrived. They addressed that issue by closing off certain areas for an hour to just families so we wouldn't have to deal with the hoards of excited children.

There are many areas in the museum for different age groups. Some of the spaces need some refreshing as the look a bit worn. There were a lot of items that seemed to be germ magnets to me--like stuffed animals and costumes that couldn't be easily cleaned on a daily basis. Overall it is fun and educational and had lots...

Our family has been to multiple children's museums in the midwest. This has by far been the best! My 11 year old was entertained enough to not be completely bored and my 3 year old loved it as well. We went on a Sunday and it was rather busy, but tolerable. There were lots of places for parents to sit,... More
