My aunt gave us free passes while we visited last summer. We have 3 kids, aged 2, 7 and 10. There was something to do for all of them. The 2-year-old especially loved the water play area and the "motor room." Everything was bright and clean.

Totally child friendly place. Everything is at their level and interactive. Kids are learning while they play. Has always been a favorite

The pint size town is a must see. The dinosaur exhibit was great but could have been more informative. The Earth sounds exhibit was closed due to a child "accident" eww.

We live about an hour away so we usually only visit the museum annually. My children are now 7 and 10 and we just came back from our spring break visit. My kids played so hard in the 4 hours we were there they both fell into bed exhausted that night. Their favorite areas are the ant town, the shipping/receiving... More

We have been to the children's museum twice, and had a great time with each experience. It is easy to find in St. Paul, and signs direct you to the nearest parking ramp. The museum has activities for all likes and abilities. I recommend checking out their website and calendar for special activity days. We went on a day when... More

This is an excellent children's museum, especially for preschool and young elementary kids. It is beautiful, bright, spacious, and well-designed for keeping an eye on kids because the exhibits are separated with one main atrium space. It has the regular children's museum offerings: (a nice, big) mini city, water/bubbles, nature room, toddler rooms, light play, etc. It also has a... More

We went to the MCM with our 2 & 4 year olds. They loved the exhibits, and we parents did too. I liked that there were different rooms to explore. Our favorites were the toddler room, which allowed lots of gross motor play, and the dinosaur exhibit. We packed a lunch and bought drinks from the vending machine, but they... More

We took our 6 year old and he was pretty bored- the only thing he really enjoyed was the ant tunnel. I think that the Science Museum has much more to offer.

We enjoyed our holiday visit to the MCM. The exhibits were fun for our almost 2 year old and the parents and grandparents enjoyed it as well. There are water tables (bubbles too!), a factory with lots of conveyor belts, a play area for the very young, craft room, giant ant hill with crawling tunnels, a main street with city... More

This place is great for young children. I think that the majority of the exhibits are geared toward young children, there isn't really anything for kids 8-10. I think anyone over 7 would be a little bored. I took my 9 year old here and she had fun, but she definitely found some of the exhibits to be too young... More
